Bete Muʻu

Manufacturer of the Classic Bete Mu'umu'u celebrating 61 years of service to our Kanaka Maoli. Originator was Elizabeth Manchester who found her "heart & soul" in her partner from Lahaina, Maui, Rene Kubo. In 1994, Mrs. Kubo retired and sold Bete Mu'u to sisters Nola & Linda Nahulu who followed in their mother's footsteps. Both Rene Kubo & Chiyoko Nahulu graduated from Dressmaking School in 1937.....hmmmmm, perhaps the stars have aligned.
