Kolonahe

Our Kolonahe collection is inspired the kui method of lei making (kui: to string pierced objects, as flowers in a lei). Lei is a symbol of aloha and giving lei is an extension of aloha. It can be given as a symbol of love, friendship, to celebrate, or even honor someone. While creating this collection, it brought back a memory of lei making with my cousin. The wind was gently blowing the smell of lei flowers and it felt like it filled the room.  Lei flowers used: pīkake, loke, pakalana. Although these lei flower are not native to Hawaiʻi, they are local favorites and hold a special place in many hearts and memories.

Kolonahe: Gentle, pleasant breeze; gentle, mild; softly blowing.
