Abstract:

The historical development of garment production in Hawaii from precontact to the present is described and analyzed in terms of the continuities and changes that have occurred in its labor process (i.e., the organization of the process of garment production). Both primary and secondary data are used in this historical analysis; the pre-1965 sections in this paper are a re-analysis of historical data gathered on the industry by Fundaburk, while the analysis of current conditions relies on data recently collected from interviews with owners and managers of garment manufacturing firms. These data show a recurring tradition of women as the producers of garments and the connection between household production and industrial production. But they also show several changes in the process of production. Most notable, changes are seen in the decline of certain craft-based production techniques, in the ethnic backgrounds of the workforce, in greater state involvement in the industry, in the differentiation and specialization of the parts of the industrial production process, and in the relationships between production and marketing functions.
