Crown Flower. All hail, the Queen is Crown (Flower) Pua Kalaunu! There’s something so enticing about these little buds…when they’re strung together in a lei they’re so intricate and distinctive, a tight little army of loveliness. Though this print is a tiny bit abstract- it’s my interpretation of the buds- even if you don’t recognize or aren’t familiar with Crown Flowers, there’s still something so delightful and playful about it. It’s not endemic to the islands but the Crown Flower was Queen Lili‘uokalani’s favorite, and we definitely can’t argue with that!
