Soon to be coveted by Tiki collectors, the Parrish Kauai mug was designed by the industry visionary THOR whose work includes Walt Disney Imagineering, Universal Studios and more.

Two Ways to Own a Ceramic Tiki Mug from The Parrish Collection Kauai.
Guests who book a property from their Elite Collection will receive two complimentary Tiki mugs during their Mai Tai welcome greeting upon arrival. A limited quantity of mugs are also available from the Parrish Kauai online store for $36 and can be shipped anywhere. Last date to order is January 31. Three color choices include blue, dark green and light green. Each mug evokes mid-century island fever with the symbolic tiki grin and is embellished with a Hawaiian pineapple and tropical scenery and Hawaii flowers.
“I have been a novice Tiki collector for years and it was my intention that the first mug have the essence of Polynesian pop culture combined with some of my favorite design attributes of mugs I have collected. The design focuses on a Tiki, my favorite, with a pineapple head dress in honor of our former owner Nancy Grantham’s pineapple based logo” mentioned JP Parrish, owner of The Parrish Collection Kauai.
Created by THOR and made by Tiki Farm.
THOR’s designs are seen in Tokyo Disney’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea among numerous others. Throughout his career he has held executive titles in the entertainment and theme park industry. Tiki Farm is the largest manufacturer of tiki mugs in the world. Most of their mugs have become collector items. They have been commissioned to produce Tiki mugs for places that include Disneyland, Mattel, Trader Vic’s, Cheeseburger in Paradise and many others.
“We decided that an authentic Hawaiian Lono Tiki God direction would be the best fit for this project,” commented Holden Westland, President of Tiki Farm. “With this particular design, we were inspired by the retro Coco Joe aesthetic and felt the inclusion of the prominently positioned pineapple, which in Hawaiian lore represents “Welcome” was an appropriate finishing touch”.
