'Xacobeo': The Galoha that Tells about Tahiti, Symbols of the Pilgrim and the Historical Relationship between Wine and the Camino de Santiago.
The scallop, the pumpkin and the Cross of Santiago are symbols of the Camino de Santiago. The pilgrim used the scallop as a glass, and the gourd as a canteen. The vine and the bunch of grapes show the close and historical relationship between wine and the Camino de Santiago as pilgrim monks helped expand vine cultivation and wine making along the Camino. The term “Xacobeo” is currently used to refer to the event that is celebrated when it is 'Compostela Holy Year'.
The originality of the 'Xacobeo' galoha lies in the fact that our creative artistic team used pilgrim symbols to create a print reminiscent of typical Tahitian plants and flowers. For example, the scallop shells are drawn to resemble a water lily, and the pumpkins are arranged to resemble a hibiscus. The weeds between the water lilies and the hibiscus are the vine and the bunch of grapes, and this tells about the close and historical relationship between wine and the Camino de Santiago, since the pilgrim monks helped expand the cultivation of the vine and the wine making along the Camino.
The Xacobeo design is available in Blue and Red. Do not miss it! This Tahitian Xacobeo shirt is available for Man and Women. Galoha shirts are designed and manufactured in Spain, with 100% organic cotton fabric.
STYLE: Pareu, Tahiti
The print of the Xacobeo shirt is inspired by the Pareu style of Tahiti. The Pareu print style is inspired by the design of the scarf that women in Tahiti used to wear, tied around their waists and up to their knees. The drawing included images of native tropical and subtropical plants and flowers, such as the water lily and hibiscus .
