Fun Fashion Fact

Did you know that Alfred Shaheen is credited with launching Hawaii’s garment industry. Hawaiian prints used to be designed in Hawaii, but made on the U.S. mainland. Importing the fabrics back to Hawaii often led to 10-month wait times, so Shaheen built his own factory to manufacture the garments. His company also created the first woven metallic fabrics, that were salt water-resistant and machine washable.
