If you were around in the early days of the Tiki Revival - Tiki Central and even Tiki News, you may have remembered the "Tiki Manifesto" put forth by Otto von Stroheim in Tiki news in 1996.
IT STATES :
"Rediscovery and Preservation of TIKI elements and artifacts is essential and will be executed at all times to the best of our ability.
We will not remove or otherwise hinder any elements in their original setting unless those elements are in imminent danger".
Home Aloha is proud to re-introduce (with the blessing of Otto) this manifesto in a bitchin' new T-Shirt.
We feel it's necessary to remember what the original motivation was being this Tiki Revival, which is now a bonafide subculture (nearing POPular culture).
It was the preservation os the original Tiki movement in popular culture of the 1950's and 60's.
LEARN IT. KNOW IT. LIVE IT.
