Shaheen not only made the aloha shirt popular, but he pioneered textile manufacturing in Hawaii. Rather than being dependent on mainland textiles and their lengthy arrival time to the islands, he opened his own textile business in 1948. His bold and extraordinary prints were influenced not only by Hawaii but the Pacific Rim. His elegant and feminine dress designs and garments are highly coveted today. Shaheen retired and closed his business in 1988, fortunately his prints are licensed to fabric companies such as Westminster Fibers. He was a recipient of Hawaii's Lifetime Achievement Award and The Honolulu Advertiser named Shaheen one of Hawaii's most Influential 150 people. It's an honor to fashion bags from his beautiful vintage hand prints.

This zen-like clutch purse showcases Shaheen's "Asian Collection",' vintage hand print "Mum Garden", 100% cotton in a beautiful coral hue. The mums and butterflies have a pearlescent shimmer making it a perfect evening bag. The interior is lined with 100% Kona cotton in antique white. Although I don't know the story behind this print, I like to think that Shaheen's team ventured to Asia and found a quaint zen garden. While drinking green tea among Chrysanthemum mums they were greeted by wistful and delicate butterflies.
