The word “tiki” originally referred to a carved statue representing a Polynesian god. More generally, “tiki” can refer to any wood or stone carving made by Pacific islanders.
A tiki may be a twelve-foot wooden statue, a mask, or even carved and worn around the neck as a talisman.
Tiki culture in the United States began in 1934 with the opening of Don the Beachcomber, a Polynesian-themed bar and restaurant in Hollywood.
Today its followers embrace the Hawaiin Shirts, to tiki carvings, shrunken heads to stunning summer dresses, cocktails and beach or surf themed decor. At KKBO you can unleash your own inner Tiki with our mix of art and tiki inspired clothing and decorative items.
