For many, sharks are scary, even evil creatures, but not native Hawaiians. They respect the animal's place in the ocean ecosystem and those for whom the shark is an Aumakua, or guardian spirit, feel at one with the toothy swimmer-a feeling this design captures with powerful traditional-style artwork. Made using our exclusive Blue Hawaii specialty dying process and featuring 100% combed ring-spun cotton, this t-shirt has 50+ SPF protection to keep you feeling cool, calm and protected all year long. We only use environmentally friendly water-based inks that penetrate the material's fiber resulting in more vibrant colors, softer feel and artwork that doesn't crack or peel. Plus, it is proudly printed in the United States for quality you can see and designs that stand the test of time.
