Wedding? Vow renewal? Anniversary? The occasion is a very personal time for you, and the message of your kihei should be what is just right for you. Choose from these popular themes:
Water: The natural realm of the ocean with waves reminding you of change, Honu ( turtles) reflecting longevity and the Ewa bird, representing guidance.
Land: The classic beauty and purity of Hawaii with flowers of Pikake and Maile
Male and Female: Subtle symbols of Kane (male) and Wahine (female) energy . Each couple can decide if they prefer to reverse these due to their personal strengths, or even have a set of two of the same. Same sex or opposite sex marriages? There is no obvious direction here: It is a personal choice that expresses your own journey and who you are.
Perhaps you prefer a unique message? Contact us about custom, one of a kind kiheis designed to honor your personal spiritual emphasis.
Historically worn by Ali'i ( royalty) , Priests and leaders, each kihei carries a symbolic story. It can express a theme of nature, or the story of each person's personal journey.
