About the Pattern:

The Amau fern serves as the inspiration for this design in the Lei Signature Series. In ancient times, the water keepers would look for the changing color of the Amau fern after a big rain to gauge where the water was traveling underground. This wayfinding practice would guide them to the most abundant places to dig and collect. The repetitious spiral pattern depicts the curl of the young fern and symbolizes the currents of freshwater that flow from the uplands to the sea. The poetic nuance of the quest for this source and sustenance of life, ka wai ola, aligns with our human experience in the quest for knowledge and inspiration within and without. The Amau fern also flourishes in the fiery lands of Pele, being one of the first plants to grow out of new land after a lava flow cools and settles, providing an excellent setting for wind blown seeds such as the ohia lehua to germinate. Amau teaches us to stand in our resilience and to be guided by the sacred source that connects us to all things.
