Simple and long-lasting, this closed or open-ended lei la'i is often given for good luck. The ancient Hawaiians believed that the la'i possessed healing powers and offered protection against evil. Ti leaves are carefully braided to create a remarkably sturdy lei. Haku are intricately braided using cotton fabric for wearing comfort. Lei and haku can be dried for long-lasting memorabilia. Móre (dried hibiscus bark) can be added for a more masculine look or various colors can be added to represent the graduates school!

Haku vs Lei po'o?  With haku the leaves are braided to form a head piece versus a lei po'o is woven around a head piece (usually with raffia). Haku has a longer shelf life than lei po'o when made without flowers.
