About this deal

The costume is a reminder that Native Hawaiians were forced to conform to an imperialist colonial society, and Hawaiian women were sexualized for Western entertainment.

Soft: Soft tees are made with either higher thread-count cotton than our classic interlock knit tees or with a blend of cotton and one or more synthetic fabrics. If you add a pineapple to the ensemble, please note pineapples are NOT native to Hawaii and were introduced to Hawaii from the Americas. This was a wonderful thing because I had no idea how I would see everyone beforehand to give them a ticket and what if they lost it?

A grass skirt is just the beginning, have a look at our ‘Hawaiian/ Beach party’ section and spoil yourself with some Hawaiian accessories and Beach themed party decorations that set the scene at your Hawaiian Party or Beach BBQ this summer! Lead Compliant: Product contains trace amounts of lead, but not enough to be considered harmful to humans.

A grass skirt is an essential item for a Hawaiian Party and paired with a cocktail you could stay tanning under the sun all day or parting all night long around the fire! My nephew Jason would be working that night and not able to get to the luau until probably 9pm or later.

Under the influence of the missionaries, Queen Regent Kaahumanu abolished traditional practices, including public performances of hula, in 1830. It wasn’t until the 1960s that Native Hawaiians were able to reclaim their identity and differentiate it from the tourism-born one that had spread rampant around the world.

From the late 19th-century to World War II, grass skirts in Polynesia became a "powerful symbol of South Sea sexuality". When I browse historical photographs from the late 1800s and find Hawaiian girls posed lounging topless in grass skirts, it raises uncomfortable questions about what the photographer’s — and publisher’s — intentions were at the time.

Once we were done with them, everything folded up and went back into the bags they came in for easy storage. In Maori culture there is a skirt-like garment made up of numerous strands of prepared flax fibres, woven or plaited, known as a piupiu which is worn during Māori cultural dance. Phthalate Free: This product conforms to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and is free of phthalates DEHP, DBP, and BBP. Probably the first article of clothing ever used by humans, the grass skirt keeps playing a prominent role in summer time fancy dress.
