Mowgli Surf // Pineapple Chop
The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. The legend began with the sea captains of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum.
According to the legend, the captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink, and listen to tales of his voyage.
As the tradition grew, colonial innkeepers added the pineapple to their signs and advertisements, and bedposts carved in the shape of a pineapple were a common sight at inns across New England.

Mowgli is so happy to collaborate with the incredible Big Bud Press!!! Big Bud is the best pin company in the business and they have a unbelievably cool line of pins! Started by renowned artist and all-round cool person Lacey Micallef.
Each Big Bud Press pin is stamped from metal and then hand-filled with colored resin. The pins are then cooked at a high temperature to turn the resin into a tough and durable enamel glass. The enamel glass is then sanded down and polished by hand until smooth and lustrous. Small differences and imperfections are normal in our pins due to the nature of their production.
Orders from Big Bud Press are packaged in recycled/recyclable materials.
