Uluwehi Greeting Card


- +

Uluwehi is inspired by plants found in our back yard and is a lei wili papa, a style of lei making where the decorative material is lashed to a center cord with a wrapping technique, often used to make lei pāpale, or lei poʻo. Lei is a symbol of aloha and giving lei is an extension of aloha. It can be given as a symbol of love, friendship, to celebrate, or even honor someone. Not all lei is store bought - this is a celebration of making lei with the resources available to us. This lei integrates indigenous plants like pōhinahina and palapalai, endemic plants like liko lehua, and other foliage found in our back yard. Uluwehi: Lush and beautiful verdure; a place where beautiful plants thrive; festively adorned.
