Concierge.com's insider take:
Where do vintage Hawaiian muumuus, those long dresses in brightly colored prints, go after they become frayed? An increasing number are being reincarnated as funky sundresses and beach bags at this Kailua boutique. Men aren't left out either—Muumuu Heaven customizes bamboo tees and vintage polo shirts with a strip of the colorful fabric. Old Hawaiian shirts also get a second life here as throw pillows, complete with buttons and pockets. Eco-minded shoppers will appreciate that everything for sale (except the imported bamboo tees) is sourced from the islands, and even the store's fixtures and shopping bags are recycled. Custom orders for a particular color palette, or using your own muumuu, are stitched up in about two weeks and available by mail order.
Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 6 pm, Sundays 11 am to 4 pm.
