Hawaiian Dresses - MuumuusHawaiians have historically used their lush, tropical environments to create and inspire their clothing styles and patterns. The Islands' abundant leaves, flowers and trees were used to create and decorate its inhabitants' clothing, and have been a cherished part of the "island style" for centuries. The warm climate often causes its inhabitants to choose loose, comfortable clothing in natural and breathable fabrics. The creation of muumuu clothing was a direct result of the need for loose styles and fabric.
