The Hook (makau) is a powerful symbol in Hawaiian culture, representing the role of the provider. According to legend, the god Maui used the Hook to pull the Hawaiian Islands out of the sea and slow down the sun to allow Hawaiians to dry their kapa (cloth).
Our Hook (makau) shirt not only celebrates this meaningful symbol, but also offers UV protection to shield your skin from harmful sun rays. This shirt is designed by local artists in Maui, Hawaii and ships directly from the island.
