Lauae Fern Guest Bath Collection with Maui Pineapple
The Collection: This collection features a blockprinted white hand towel featuring the Lauae Fern, a Maui Pineapple Confetti Soap and a bamboo soap dish all tucked into a traditional Hawaiian lauhala gift basket. This tasteful collection is the perfect gift to treat yourself or someone you love--ideal for guest bathrooms.
The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Towel: White cotton tea towel with green Laua'e (fern) blockprint artwork.
Lauaʻe, a native Hawaiian fern, is characterized by its fragrant smell, which is reminiscent of maile, and by the round spores that often dot its leaves. Lauaʻe is used for hula adornments, lei, and to add a pleasant scent to kapa cloth. These lovely towels would be equally at home in your kitchen or bathroom.
The Story: Created by artist Palapala (Barbara) Chung. Palapala's company is based in Maui, Hawaii where she designs and carves original blockprints of Hawaiian motifs and subjects, combining them with contemporary form and function. The images are flora and fauna found on the islands or subjects related to important aspects of Hawaiian culture. Palapala’s artwork is inspired by her love of Hawai’i – the ocean, the hula and the Hawaiian culture. 20 x 28 inches, 100% cotton. Care Instructions: Machine wash warm, tumble dry medium. Do not iron directly on image.
The Soap: Island Essence soaps naturally and gently cleanse your skin. Handcrafted in our little factory on Maui, our soaps are made with love and Aloha. Maui Pineapple celebrates the signature fruit of Hawaii that is still being grown in the golden fields of Hailemaile....juicy, delectable, cleansing gorgeousness! 5oz.
The Soap Dish: Natural wood soap dish made from sustainable bamboo in a convenient rectangular shape. A soap dish will increase the life of any bar soap, elevating it so it doesn't sit in a pool of excess water. Product Dimensions: Size: 4 3/4” x 3 1/4” Weight: 3.5oz.
Gifting: Each lauhala basket is finished with a ribbon. If you are gifting, and would like us to add a handwritten message on a gift tag, please leave details in the note section on checkout. And thank you for sharing the Aloha!
Sending to a Friend: We are happy to send any gift(s) directly to the recipient, but each gift needs to be a separate order so the correct shipping and shipping details are applied. There will be no pricing enclosed with the gift--just a packing slip (no prices). Mahalo for sharing the aloha!
Lei Gift Option: To make this gift even more special, consider adding a Kukui Nut Lei to this basket. This is a traditional style lei, often worn at weddings and during dance performances--and worn by both men and women. Simply add the Kukui Nut Lei to your order (only $9.50) and on checkout in the notes section, ask us to add to the basket contents.
