History of the Hawaiian Fresh Lei Custom

The lei custom was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by early Polynesian voyagers, who sailed the vast oceans from Tahiti to Hawaii, navigating by the stars for thousands of miles in rugged sailing canoes. With these early visitors came our beautiful lei tradition.

Leis were originally constructed of flowers, leaves, shells, seeds, nuts and feathers, and often given as symbols of love in weddings, symbols of peace as early opposing chiefs and groups came together, and as symbols of beauty and Alii (royalty) in the case of Hawaiian hula dancers and Hawaiian royalty.

As the Hawaiian Islands became a popular tourist destination the lei quickly became the symbol of Hawaii to millions of visitors worldwide.

Before airline travel, visitors would arrive by ship, and it is said that departing visitors would throw their lei into the ocean as the ship passed Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, in the hopes that, like the lei, they too would return to the islands again someday. Now we can send that Hawaiian Aloha custom to anyone, anywhere, anytime, with our beautiful handmade fresh Hawaiian leis made especially for you with the aloha spirit and traditions of the Hawaiian Islands.

To properly wear a lei, gently drape it over the shoulders halfway between the front and the back. It is perfectly proper to wear multiple leis and many graduates in Hawaii are often seen with many leis all at once as all of their loved ones shower them with the aloha of our islands in the form of beautiful fresh Hawaiian leis.
