In collaboration, Kūlua Maui, Artistry8, + Swag Hawaiʻi present PAHU PIHA, a free and fun spring break pahu (box) activity to learn and teach your keiki how to make lei using sustainable fabric scraps from Kūlua Studio located in Makawao City.

“Making and giving lei in Hawai’i is a valuable practice and we would like to encourage everyone to be creative and enjoy ‘ohana time,” said contributors.

Each pahu is filled with two packets of fabric, instructions for making a “hilo style” and “maile style” lei, and collaborator information.

This project is made possible thanks to Kūlua and Artistry8, and customers who purchased the LOKELANI x Artistry8 print last year. A portion of all proceeds have been collected to create a fund that supports PAHU PIHA as well as a scholarship to be announced soon.

Entrants can post their lei on social media, use #pahupiha and tag @kuluamaui @artistry8 @swaghawaii and be entered to win a free LOKELANI gift set worth $100. Enter by March 25, 2022. The winner will be announced by March 31, 2022.
