Design Story

As a guitar & ukulele player, there is nothing that I like more than an impromptu jam session between family and friends.  In Hawaii, these types of acoustic jams are known as Kanikapila.  I first heard this term on a trip to Hawaii back in in 1996, when I happened upon a fantastic album called Acoustic Soul by John Cruz.  From that moment on, I was hooked on John Cruz, Hawaiian music and the concept of Kanikapila.  

So with this new design, I want to pay homage to Kanikapila, with hopes that we can extend the use of this glorious positive word to acoustic jams that occur far from the shores of Hawaii.  I encourage you to host your own Kanikapilas no matter where you call home.  

Aloha Nui Loa!

The Gibson J200 Tree of Life T-shirt!

I had wanted one of these great T shirts with a Gibson jumbo on the front, but when I went to order one, they weren't available! I kept checking the Thalia site and then there they were! So if you want one, order it now, don't wait! I wore mine to my gigs last summer! My bandmate liked it so much I got him a Martin Tree of Life shirt for his birthday.

His favourite Christmas present!

My boyfriend is absolutely chuffed to bits with this T-shirt. It is well made from good quality fabric and washes well. He usually wears a large but I'm in the UK where sizes are slightly different, so after studying the size chart I went for a medium - it fits him perfectly.
The design is so unusual and it really stands out. He wears it all the time - it's way better than any of the Christmas presents he got me!
