The Kukui Nut lei is a classic, handsome lei that is lightweight and long-lasting. The Kukui Nut never perishes and can be worn repeatedly. The Kukui Nut tree is Hawaii’s state tree and is commonly used in dyes, carving, and even as a source of oil (also known as candle nuts.) The most common colors for polished Kukui Nuts are black and brown. Our white (bleached) Kukui Nut lei is sewn with Ti leaves to create a flattering, memorable appearance.
Care: Refrigerate in plastic bag to keep Ti leaves fresh. Kukui nut is non-perishable.
