Something else, Hawaii patterns by Alfred Shaheen

Patroon-patroon-patroon-patroon by Alfred Shaheen

Surfing online, looking for Batik, patterns and traditional dances, I found these interesting designs by Alfred Shaheen.
Alfred Shaheen (1922-2008) was in the 50's the most important designer of Hawaii. He made beautiful dresses, bikinis and the very famous Hawaii shirts.
The traditional motifs are used in cocktail dresses and lampshades.
The patterns/motifs are being printed with silkscreen on the fabric.
