HISTORY OF THE TIKI TORCH
The Tiki Torch has it roots in Polynesian Culture that slowly began to take root in US culture in the late 1940's and early 50's. With soldiers returning from the Pacific Theater of WWII an infusion of Polynesian bars and restaurants bloomed across the united states. With the spread of Polynesian culture came the famous tiki torch. Originally made of bamboo the tiki torch has been a staple of outdoor activities throughout the US for over 50 years.
I have to say this is a new one for me. I never new that Tiki was a Wisconsin Company but according to our research in the 1950s, a company in Wisconsin began producing aluminum torches for consumer use, obtaining a trademark for the "Tiki Torch" name.
