NOTES: The Hawai`ian Heritage pattern remains an enduring and endearing symbol of. S monarchy period and originally set the basis precedent as a very traditional heirloom pattern. The orignal Heritage design evolved from one of Queen Lili`uokalani's inspired bracelet designs of a similar pattern featuring Hawai`ian pua (flowers) and la`au (plants). In this way, she transferred her deep feelings for her birthplace, home and people from her heart to her bracelets; a sentimental reminder for herself and a symbol for others to admire.
Several of these particular Hawai`ian Heirloom patterns remain an enduring and endearing symbol of Hawai`i's monarchy period and originally set the basis precedent as very traditional heirloom designs evolving into the very detailed modern designs today, which are still traditionally passed down through ohana (family) generations. Other heirloom designs, such as the Queen Emma pattern, was created to dedicate the design in her name sake. Yet, others such as the Princess Scrolls, Royal Lei Maile, Pua Melia (Plumeria), or Kuiki Huikau (Mixed Quilts) offer symbolic meanings only certain individuals can appreciate and cherish with a pride of ownership for their very own.
