HOPES joins the circle of lokai

On June 1, Lula 101’s direct-owned retail store in Taipei, HOPES, will begin carrying the highly desired lokai Bracelet. This hugely popular bracelet is quickly becoming a must-have accessory as more celebrities and influencers are posting their “#livelokai” selfies on social media.

Carrying lokai in HOPES has great meaning to Sherry, the owner of HOPES store, on a personal level. Some of you may know her story (here and here), and the challenges she had to convert her “waking dream” into the American dream. Therefore, Sherry can really relate to what Steven Izen, the founder of lokai, 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.”

The value behind the lokai bracelet is to encourage you to find your balance. The product expresses the best and worst conditions you might possibly encounter in life, represented in white and black beads. Water from Mt. Everest is embedded within in the white bead, while the black bead is infused with mud from the Dead Sea, and the rest is connected with the clear beads. This is to remind us that life is a circle, nothing is eternal – >stay humble when you’re on top of the world and remain hopeful when you hit its lows.
