White Haku Lei (Flower Crown)
The traditional haku-style lei (aka Flower Crown) is commonly worn by the bride, and makes a wonderful accent to a bridesmaid or flower girl ensemble.
The word “haku” refers to the method of braiding foliage such as flowers and ferns on a natural base material like ti or banana leaves. The color is often all white for the bride, but our haku leis can be custom made with any combination of multi-colored flowers. We primarily use dendrobium orchids as the base flower, and styles may vary than that as pictured.

In contemporary Hawaiian society, the term “haku” is associated with a lei worn on the head. However, traditionally, “haku” simply refers to the method of making a lei with a base material, such as a ti leaf, or tree bark, and braiding it while adding flowers, leaves, or ferns. This is a traditional Hawaiian style of lei making that was common in old Hawaii, and we primarily use dendrobium orchids. The contemporary haku head lei is quite popular in the Islands for weddings, graduations, and any special occasion.
