Dimensions (not including handle): 6" side to side / 3" front to back / 7.5" high
Paiki Lau (pah 'ee key - low (rhymes with now) means "purse" and "leaf" in Hawaiian.
Made from the natural colored sheath from the Royal Palm, this little purse is a show stopper. Perfect one of a kind addition to the serious purse lover's collection, or eco-friendly earth conscious human. It has a wood base so it stands nicely on its own, with embellishments of handmade paper in cream, gold and greens, a bamboo handle and fully lined interior with drawstring closure. Completed with a hand rubbed polyurethane finish.
When not in use as a purse at an event or out on the town, it makes a lovely stand alone art piece on your shelf (or a special place to keep your love letters, etc.).
Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome #wearhawaii
