Founded in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1936 by Nat Norfleet Sr. and George Brangier, Kahala was one of the first brands in the world to manufacture and wholesale aloha shirts. Known for subtle, tasteful cotton prints that captured the feeling of life in Hawai’I, Kahala quickly became a favorite of locals and visitors alike.
Today, more than 80 years since its founding, Kahala enjoys a following of loyal customers who recognize the company’s devotion to excellence in textile artwork and clothing styles with a personality distinctly its own. Rooted in heritage, and with a focus on the future, Kahala strives to share the aloha spirit with the rest of the world.
