From the years 30 and stronger in the years 50, immediately became a major centre of tourism due to its unique habits, influencing on art, music and fashion of the time especially in.
Hawaii has a tropical climate, being very similar to the Brazilian climate. Soon, our association with the style becomes more adaptable because we can inspire us on a culture of our Brazilian lands.
When we think of primitive style, remember a few clothes and use of local raw material, such as straw, coconut, Cork, bamboo, cotton, guaranteeing lightness and joy to the visual. Tori Richard and Reyn Spooner are examples of brands created in 1956 in Hawaii who helped spread the tiki culture in the world. And you can get more from fredericashops.com.
