Alfred Shaheen
Surf ‘n Sand Fabrics


Surf ‘n Sand is the name of Alfred Shaheen’s first print plant and the label under which Shaheen first printed his legendary textile designs and fabrics.  Established in a rented Quonset hut a short distance from the future Honolulu Airport, Shaheen’s Surf ‘n Sand print plant was producing approximately 60,000 yards of material per month by 1952.
