Silky fragrant Maile combined with the soft petals of Orchid make this a perfect lei for that special someone. This lei will last up to five days if properly taken care of. Maile leaves are believed to protect the wearer, bestow good luck, and even possess healing powers. This is an open-ended lei which hangs down to the belt line or below. Although beautiful alone, the Maile is commonly entwined with various flowers to add to its splendor. This lei is commonly worn by males for weddings, graduation ceremonies, proms, and special occasions.
Pictured is a polynesian maile. Unfortunately, we are not getting Polynesian maile at this time and using only local maile from Hilo. There is a different look to the Hilo maile - it is viney and leaves are spaced out. But Hilo Maile is revered in Hawaii and has beautiful large leaves with an amazing vanilla-like fragrance. Please look at our Hilo maile before purchasing. (If you would like to have a thick maile, call to order a " Double-Double Hilo Maile" - which is two Hilo Maile's twisted together.)
Note: Due to strict agricultural state laws, we regret to inform you that we cannot ship to California. Please see Ti-Maile for a beautiful alternative.
Care: Refrigerate in sealed plastic bag or container.
