The Aloha State of mind
"UA OLA LOKO I KE ALOHA" - Love gives life within
In Hawaii “Aloha” is a common word that is often used in hello/goodbyes greetings or expressing love, but those who practice the spirit of Aloha know it has a profound and deeper meaning. The meaning derives from ancient Hawaiian wisdom that was given as a gift to the Hawaiian people “in the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo)." To Hawaiians or locals who live in Hawaii understand, Aloha is a way of life that helps create and spread positive energy to others and the environment.
Inspired by the Hawaiian philosophy of the “Aloha Spirit” founders Cody and Nancy Sheets began with the simple mission of sharing Aloha with family, friends and visitors through the use of environmentally friendly fashion and socially conscious products.
Opening Fleur De Lei (flower necklace) an eco boutique in a rustic Hawaiian cowboy town called Makawao, on Maui was the answer to fulfilling their big vision: a local marketplace where people can shop for a good cause, feel good about the products they buy and help minimize the impact on the environment.
Our planet gives us such awe-inspiring natural beauty that anyone can recall a time where they’ve experienced a special connection with nature. Being in tune with nature is another big part of experiencing the Aloha Spirit. We believe its important for everyone to make responsible choices that give back to nature while preserving our current environment so future generations can continue enjoying all of nature’s gifts.By applying the Aloha Spirit in our daily lives and business operations we can show those around us with unconditional love, respect and inspire others to joyfully share life and the environment is our way of contributing to a better world. The most rewarding part of our job is the more Aloha we give to people, the more repeat customers we get back in return.
