Lei Puakenikeni Washi Tape Gold Foil


This washi was inspired by local lei stands, where strands of lei hang for customers to enjoy and purchase for various special occasions.

Puakenikeni means ten-cent flower, pua meaning "flower" and kenikeni meaning "ten cents." Its name is derived from the early 1900's when visitors arrived by boat, and one could purchase Lei Puakenikeni for 10 cents.
