Maile-Style Ti Leaf Lei

$40.00

This handsome lei has been constructed to mimic the traditional maile lei, and is extremely durable. Longer and fuller than a regular open-ended ti leaf lei, this is a very festive option for any occasion.

Ti Leaf Lei Process: Ti leaves are frozen or baked to create pliability for our lei making process. This preparation darkens the color of the ti leaf a bit and also preserves the strength and integrity of the leaf, ensuring it will hold up beautifully when worn.

RELATED INFORMATION

The ti plant was brought to Hawaii prior to 1778 by the early Polynesians from Tangaroa, Tane, Ti and Rongo. Hawaiian Ki was considered sacred to the Hawaiian god, Lono, and to the goddess of the hula, Laka. It symbolized high rank and divine power. The leaves were used by the kahuna priests in ancient rituals as protection from evil spirits.

In old Hawaii, Ki was extremely important for practical reasons as well. It was commonly used medicinally. The leaves were wrapped around warm stones to serve as hot packs for injuries. The leaves were also boiled to make a drink, which aided in nerve and muscle relaxation, and the steam from boiled young shoots and leaves was an excellent decongestant.
