The Mwarmwar, or flower crown, is a statement of beauty found all across the pacific and often used for formal wear, or special occasions especially graduations or to celebrate major life events. Flower crowns can be worn by both men and women and can vary in size, color, floral patterns, and shape. Throughout the pacific, you will find different flower crowns based on the materials found in each island’s unique natural environment. In the Marianas, you’ll find crowns of native ginger flowers, plumeria, and money tree leaves, these materials symbolic of beauty and prosperity. We invite you to join us at Valley of the Latte for our Cultural Workshops where we will be learning how to make Marmar and other traditional adornments from our cultural practitioners.
Space is limited so sign up today!
