For Hawaiians, Lei Hulu or feather lei were reserved for the Ali’i, They were the adornment and acknowledgment of nobility. Feathers were gathered from various birds such as the ‘i’iwi, ‘elepaio, ‘apapane, and ‘o’o and were made into lei, cloaks, and helmets. Today, the art of feather lei is enjoying a resurgence with younger artisans using more contemporary designs and patterns. Native birds are no longer used for their feathers and many are now extinct. Feathers used today come from game birds, domestic fowl, and commercial feather companies.
