It all started in 2013, when Lana, a successful accessories designer with a passion for surfing and travel, visited Hawaii for the first time. She was instantly taken by the aloha spirit, the lush colors and the awesome surf.
As a creative she finds inspiration everywhere and Hawaii stuck recurring to Lanas mind.
After she was back in her office designing never ending collections in black and grey for her clients again, she decided to change from black to color in her own way.
She went back to Hawaii and dreamed up Lana Lei – an accessories brand dedicated to crisp color, graphic prints and excellent workmanship. Debuting with five colorways, she combined a soft quilted cotton fabric with functional yet stylish shapes in an entirely new way. Lana Lei was born.
