The difference between aloha shirts and Kariyushi wear
“Kariyushi wear” is a shirt specially manufactured as resort wear to promote Okinawa as well as enabling to spend the Okinawan summer comfortably. The design is very similar to aloha shirts and in fact, is designed based on motifs of aloha shirts. However, “Kariyushi wear” must meet below all three terms:
1. Manufactured in Okinawa
2. Designs must have Okinawan motifs
3. Official certification
Many of the design motifs are based on Okinawan’s traditional cloth-die patterns such as “Ryukyu Kasuri” and “Bingata”, shisa lions and hibiscus flowers. The use of colors is much softer and it is made of cotton to absorb moisture to prevent stickiness, whereas aloha shirts are often made of synthetic fibers like rayon.
Must have this “Kariyushi Wear” tag to prove its official certification.
