It was my sister’s birthday last month and just days before she tells me she wants “one of those lokai bracelets that everyone’s wearing. Having no idea what that was, limited time, and calling a handful of stores in NYC, we finally got a hold of one. Needless to say, she was very happy but now I was a bit jealous. It seemed these bracelets were mainly worn by women when in fact it’s a very universal product, created by the male specimen, Steven Izen.

The name lokai was inspired by the Hawaiian word Lokahi meaning unity and to blend opposites. Lokai is our unique pursuit of finding a mental balance.

These bracelets are a story of life inspired from true events in Steven Izen’s life.

“A few years ago, I found myself in a moment of sadness, for my grandfather who had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The black bead of the lokai bracelet holds mud from the Dead Sea to represent this moment, when I felt at my lowest point.

Yet at the same time, I was struck by a feeling of immense gratitude for where I was in my life. The white bead of the lokai bracelet carries water from Mount Everest to represent this moment, when I felt like I was on top of the world.”

The lokai bracelet was born.

The Black Bead – Stay Hopeful

Sitting directly opposite its white counterpart, the black bead holds mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, signifying the difficult moments you experience throughout life.

Even through life’s lowest moments, stay hopeful.

Of course, we had to cut one open and show you the mud within the black bead! Hey, this is our reputation on the line too!

The Clear Beads – Keep Moving

The clear silicone beads represent that everyone has their own story. While life has its highs and lows, every point in-between is just as meaningful – these points make up the fabric of your own story. The clear beads remind us that clarity is key in times of joy and sadness.

The White Bead – Stay Humble

Carrying water from Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth, the white bead represents life’s highest moments. Sourced by Sherpas who are native to the landmark, the water is injected into the center of the silicone ball itself.  As silicone is a porous material we have found that over time when wearing your lokai the water may evaporate throughout the white ball.

It’s those times when you’re feeling on top of the world, that it’s most important to stay humble.

Steven Izen, Founder of lokai once said “Life is full of joy and sadness, and we can all relate to its highs and lows. I hope that lokai will remind you to stay balanced and centered along your journey.”
