Mikioi is a twisted kui style lei inspired by lei found hanging in lei stands, ready to be gifted and worn for special occasions. Lei is a symbol of aloha and giving lei is an extension of aloha. It can be given as a symbol of love, friendship, to celebrate, or even to honor someone. This lei is strung with pīkake and loke. Although both flowers are not native to Hawaiʻi, they are local favorites.
