A Butterfly lei is a colorful favorite. Our skilled Hawaiian lei makers take loose orchid blooms and fold them so carefully. This folding technique creates a display reminiscent of the most beautiful of nature’s butterflies. Butterfly lei have an arched fold in the center of the petal. The open petals of each blossom gives the appearance of wings. The remarkable form of this lei is sure to delight the wearer and all those who see it.
Butterfly lei are made with exotic dendrobium orchids. We give you a wide range of colors to choose from. White orchid blossoms are used to make this lei in a pure white color. A white lei will go with almost any outfit and is very feminine.
You may select a natural purple butterfly lei made with purple orchids that have white towards their centers. Purple will stand out against a white outfit including a wedding gown.
Color infused leis must be ordered a week before shipping. The color infusion takes extra time.
White is not available until after May
Color infused orchid blooms are used to make this lei in four different colors. We take the same orchid blossoms used to make the purple version of this lei. Those orchid sprays are then infused internally with blue, green, red or yellow. Note that this is not a dying or spray-on technique, but a systemic one. This is a wonderful way to wear school colors with a graduation lei. You can also match the bride’s chosen colors for a Hawaiian wedding. The texture sewing style of this lei makes it more suitable for women.
Refrigerate your Hawaiian lei in closed bag immediately after it arrives. A little mist of lukewarm water will freshen it a bit after it arrives from Hawaii.
White, Purple, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow
