Please select from the following:

  • Lei Pakalana is on a white background and is  1.1 inches x 12 inches
  • Lei Pīkake is on a white background and is 1.54 inches x 12 inches
  • Lei Puakenikeni is on a white background and is  1.07 inches x 12 inches
  • Lei Trio includes all three lei - Lei Pīkake, Lei Puakenikeni, Lei Pakalana.

Pakalana is the local variety of the Chinese violet, Telosma cordata, that was brought to Hawaiʻi possibly around the mid 1800ʻs. Often sewn in single strands, then layered upon themselves, this local treasure is an intensly fragrant flower.

Pīkake is the Hawaiian name for  Jasminum sambac, one of about a dozen Jasminum species grown in Hawaiʻi. The name is adapted from the word “peacock,” because Princess Kaʻiulani was fond of both this flower and the bird.

Puakenikeni means ten-cent flower, pua meaning "flower" and kenikeni meaning "ten cents." Its name is derived from the early 1900's when visitors arrived by boat, and one could purchase Lei Puakenikeni for 10 cents.

Lei trio includes Lei Pakalana, Lei Pīkake, Puakenikeni - what we love to call the power trio.  This iconic symbol of aloha plays a key role in our culture. Lei symbolizes love, honor, and friendship. Often used for gifting, greeting, and honoring or marking a special occasion, lei is something truly special to Hawaiʻi.

Our pepili wainola (vinyl stickers) are weatherproof and are able to withstand exposure to wind, rain and sunlight. All of our stickers are printed on premium vinyl with a permanent adhesive and are coated with a protective laminate that makes them super durable and resistant to fading, scratching, tearing, and water. They can even be safely run through a dishwasher.

NOT scented (although we wish they were).

This listing is for the specific selection ONLY.
