We wish it was ready now too! We're doing everything we can to get it back asap. This shirt is very popular and sold out faster than we anticipated. We are also dealing with the supply chain delays that are all over the news these days. Unfortunately, that is beyond our control. Some things just run on Aloha time.
The good news is that we've got the fabric to make these shirts in El Paso. So we recommend preordering now to reserve yours for the run of shirts we're making, as these will likely sell out quickly again. Thank you very much for your patience and interest in our shirts.
For more than 40 years, Mayumi Oda has made it a practice when she can’t paint to copy out the heart sutra. In this print, she used an overlay technique to place a sea turtle (or honu) over the sutra, blending her practice with the love of her home in Hawaii. We used Mayumi's original artwork in creating this textile design, so if you look carefully enough you can even see the ink drops from her paintbrush in some places.

The Artist: Mayumi Oda
Mayumi Oda is one of Hawaii’s most treasured and well-known artists. Mayumi's lifelong concern for the earth and her view of it as a source of healing and nourishment moved her to begin cultivating a farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. Born in Japan, for the past 20 years Mayumi has lived and worked in her home at Gingerhill Farm in Kealakekua. Growing up in Tokyo, Mayumi studied fine art and traditional Japanese fabric dying. Mayumi’s unique apprenticeship dying fabric for kimonos influences the color and composition of her work.
