  • About Ethel Chun Lum (Smithsonian Website):"The exhibitionCreating Hawai‘iopened on August 21, 2009, and features aloha shirts. The precise origins of the aloha shirts are unclear, but Ellery Chun, owner of King-Smith Clothiers and Dry Goods, is believed to be the originator. Using leftover kimono fabric, Chun and his seamstress sister, Ethel Chun Lum, manufactured the first of the vibrantly-colored, floral, short-sleeved shirts. In 1936, Ellery Chun patented the name “aloha shirt.” His sister’s designs influenced and promoted the “Hawaiian” look. Ethel Chun donated the original aloha shirt designs, sketches, sample fabric, and printing blocks to the Smithsonian in 1998."
