Lei Pāpahi was organically created from a passion of working with local flowers married with jewelry design and passion for color. For Kristi, it seemed natural to create unique and exceptional lei. Just as each individual is unique and given specific and one-of-a-kind gifts and talents, so are the lei being presented to each in great honor. Lei Pāpahi means to confer with honor- chosen specifically to highlight the honoring process of lei giving, and in the same vein of honoring God, the Creator of all gifts.
Textures and colors are important features that bring out the natural beauty in the final element. The more distinctive a lei, more honor is conveyed. Each lei component is sustainably selected – enabling enjoyment for many days, to the finale of a dried memento.
Max has been a true champion in creating a platform and assisting to achieve a shared vision of the beauty, tradition, and appreciation for lei. He researches deep within the vaults of undiscovered, in-depth meaning and reasoning for concepts, creations, and heritage.. His intention and sensitive perception on gathering the essence of any project is unparalleled. Aesthetic and pride are important well beyond the surface – striving always for the truest, most well-told story.
