Hana leis are among the most beautiful and elegant Hawaiian leis. Lovely fresh orchids are painstakingly folded and layered to gift this lei an extraordinary look. This lei is worn for the most special of occasions including Hawaiian weddings or as a graduation lei. Though the layering of the orchids gives a delicate look this lei is actually quite hardy. We use exotic dendrobium orchids which are a favorite of lei makes due to their long life after harvesting.
We give you a choice of pure white orchids or orchids that are purple and white. The flowers layer tightly together. This lei is made closed and is about three feet around, a standard size for most leis. It will be about two inches wide. A Hana lei is appropriate for men or women. Though the pure white lei is more feminine and would be suitable for a bride.
A Hana lei is easy to care for. Just open the shipping box immediately and gently remove the lei. You can mist it lightly with some clean water. Then place the lei in a closed bag and refrigerate until presenting or wearing. You may need to gently dry the lei before putting it on.
We generally have the needed flowers on hand to make this lei. However, it does take time to make. So please order in advance to give our lei makers time to create your lei. Remember, you select the date you would like to arrive when you order. So once you have plans for your wedding, graduation or other event you can order with us and relax.
If the name is familiar to you it may be from the lovely town on the island of Maui. The Road to Hana is famous for it’s many scenic views and waterfalls. This lei is also known as a Christina lei.
