UNINHABITED SHELLING

-LIVE SHELLING IS HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED!

please only take seashells that are uninhabited or have no life upon them!

Here at Lovellysea, uninhabited shelling is a non negotiable thing. As a small business that constantly uses sea shells as a material, ethical shelling is the only way I believe in. As in, taking nothing that has life upon it!  I hear many people say, "there aren't much shells anymore". Well, that's because people keep taking them when they are occupied!  Leaving them with no chance to live or reproduce! Every seashell that I offer was never occupied by an animal when found!

LAUHALA

Lauhala-Pandaus-Screwpine

Lau-Leaf

 

Lauhala weaving is a traditional art Hawaiians and Polynesians have practiced for many years. A beautiful plant harvested for many of its parts, especially its leaves or leaf(Lau). The Lauhala leaves were woven into many different uses like their sails on their boats, mats for their hale(house), baskets for storage and luggaging, and etc.. The art grew to hats from different ranges and styles, Jewelry, purses, and more! Here at Lovellysea we hand weave each product with extra love and Aloha. Wear a little of Kaua'i everywhere you go.

 

Weaving background:

I began weaving December 2020 as my Tutu(grandmother) as my Kumu. Her astonishing knowledge she has shared with me will forever be an amazing impact to my life. All my techniques and styles I share is a piece of mana that my Tutu has shared and gifted me with. The gift is knowledge and learning how to appreciate a Hawaiian cultural practice and the family that I was blessed to be apart of. I am happy I get to share a piece of the Hawaiian culture with you all. Mahalo Tutu.
