lei pua kenikeni…

there is a certain regalness… an elegance… when lei pua kenikeni and ʻeleʻele are paired together! “classic”… comes to mind. mahalo piha for this nod to this timeless combination.

Pua Kenikeni T

This is my favorite of all the T's. I had previously purchased 3 of the other T's. The pua kenikni lei is beautifully displayed on the black T. The fabric is light and comfortable in very warm weather. I purchased a 2X and it is true to size. I washed it and normally I hang dry these T's but I had accidently put it in the dryer and thankfully, it did not shrink.

Lovely shirt

I really like this shirt. I have two others that are size Large (I usually wear a medium or sometimes a small in other makes). This large seems to be cut bigger than the others, but it’s still flattering.

Puakenikeni is a special flower in our Ohana!

My husbands favorite flower is Puakenikeni. We have 2 trees in our yard. My
daughters love to wear the flower in their hair. The smell is sooo fragrant.
I have the Ele'ele Puakenikeni Tee & bought one for a friend who also loves the
flower. My daughters also have the Tee.
