Aloha kākou!

We continue celebrating our ten-year anniversary with our Umi A Ola collection, in which we aim to showcase our growth and dedication to our craft through use of premium materials and rich, timeless aesthetics. Also in line with our ten year anniversary, we’ve developed a new core branding package that helps mark this pivotal moment in our brand’s existence. As we usher in the next phase of our journey, we want to mahalo everyone for their continued support. We humbly and truthfully feel that the ten (umi) years before us and the ten years ahead give us life (ola).

UMI A OLA PATTERNS
For the Umi A Ola collection, we unveiled two new patterns that would help accentuate our long-standing history as well as reveal a new beginning for ourselves. The Woven X pattern contains a stylized roman numeral X (10) and is inspired by makaloa and lauhala—materials used by master craftsmen for weaving. The deeper meaning behind the idea of weaving is the sense of togetherness, ʻohana, and community. Strong bonds woven together over time that can’t easily be broken. The Hulu pattern focuses on the ‘ahu ‘ula concept we mentioned in our first Umi A Ola post. It contains stylized yellow and red feathers seen on various ʻahu ʻula, and it represents a new start as we peel back our yellow feathers and show the red feathers underneath—our koko (blood).

 

Mahalo Snapback – Red/Gold or Black/Gold
The very first New Era 59FIFTYs produced by FITTED back in 2006 consisted of two designs, the Kamehameha and H Pride. The Kamehameha design came in two colorways, red/gold and black/gold. These have become largely revered over the years due to their rarity and their special place in our history as being the very first Kamehameha hats produced. At our 5 year mark, we decided to re-release these colorways—along with the green/orange that appeared on the H Pride—but swapped with new front logos that we’ve become known for. For our 10 year anniversary, we’re bringing back the original colorways yet again, but this time we wanted to use the Mahalo logo on all of them, as it’s perhaps our most meaningful design and we’d like to use it to mahalo everyone for their support over the years. On the inside we’re showcasing our new Hulu pattern to represent our growth and the start of another 10 years.
