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.

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. The contemporary haku head lei is quite popular in the Islands for weddings, graduations, and any special occasion.
