Here are 21 vintage, uncut, Alfred Shaheen's original silk screened fabric made for the women's clothing in the 1960 - 1980's. Each one is beautiful and unique and in very good condition.

The beautiful floral panels were uniquely designed by Alfred Shaheen and hand silk screened on a variety of fabrics such as linen, rayon, cotton or polyester. They were sold in a set of two panels which was enough to make a sleeveless dress, or a long skirt; both timeless and popular then and still today.

He also designed dress patterns which were sold in his own stores with his fabric, so people could buy them and take them home and make their own unique fashion.

If you don't like to sew, I have two dresses for sale with his fabric, listed under clothing and accessories.

Designs shown are as follows:

Yellow Roses, Bird of Paradise, Blue Chrysanthemum, White Chrysanthemum, Ilima, Pink Roses, Orange Poppies, Brown Bird of Paradise on beige linen, Brown Bird of Paradise on beige linen, Blue Roses, Pink Bird of Paradise, Butterfly Fantasy, Yellow Roses on beige linen, Brown Geisa (2 matching panel sets), Orange Lily, Red Rose, Pink Chrysanthemum, Pink Geisha, Yellow Water Lily and Yellow/Orange Wood Rose. The two dresses are made from his pattern which I have for sale in another listing. they are the Red Ilima, and Green Geisha fabric.

Alfred Shaheen - (January 31, 1922 – December 22, 2008)
Alfred Shaheen was a textile industrialist who is credited with popularizing the Hawaiian Aloha shirt.

Alfred Shaheen is arguably the father of the Hawaiian fashion industry. It was Shaheen who brought Hawai‘i fashion to the world. His unique and artful prints and sophisticated, fashion-forward silhouettes brought national, and even international, attention to island fashion from the 1940s through the 1980s. It was Shaheen who took aloha attire from casual tourist wear to elegant style statements.

No manufacturer inspires more respect than Alfred Shaheen, who built the most self-sufficient garment company Hawaii would ever see. This success story of a family-run, Hawaiian owned and operated company has inspired others for more than 50 years.

Elvis Presley wears the Tiare Tapa, an Alfred Shaheen shirt, on the album cover for his album Blue Hawaii.

In 1988, after 40 years in business, Shaheen retired and closed his doors. On December 22, 2008, at the age of 86, Shaheen passed away due to complications from diabetes.

Alfred Shaheen was the cornerstone on which the Hawaiian fashion industry was built, and he was pivotal in its transition from small mom-and-pop businesses to a modern garment industry.

Alfred Shaheen introduced Hawaiian clothing to the people of the world and changed the global landscape of textiles, fashion, and design forever. His impact on Hawai‘i was recognized in 2001 when he was awarded Hawai‘i’s Ka ‘Ahu No‘eau Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2006, Shaheen was listed as one of the 150 most important influences in Hawai‘i. Shaheen’s legacy continues to have an impact on Hawaiian fashion and its designers now, in the 21st century. The Hawaiian fusion fashion Alfred Shaheen brought to the U.S., captured a sense of Hawai‘i’s ethnic uniqueness that is at the heart of the aloha spirit.

A whirl of vibrant colors, lines, images, and patterns. Breathtaking flair, sunny motifs, and “bombshell” sensations. Splendid aloha styles of the fifties and sixties. Weave these together with a new approach to design development and management practice within the Hawaiian garment industry and what results is the story of Alfred Shaheen, a man whose impact was more than most will ever recognize.

Alfred Shaheen has been called “visionary,” a “genius” and a “pioneer”. He did many things, but most importantly he introduced Hawaiian clothing and ethnic textile design to the people of the world, and in doing so forever changed the global landscape of textiles, fashion and design.
