Star of India Aloha Lei

This Lei is named: Star of India Aloha Lei Color # 2.  Colors selected are original colors. The ribbon size used for this lei is 7/8" wide except for the "spikes" which are 1/8" wide, along with specialty Green stripes and variegated Pink color ribbons.  There is also a combination of sheer ribbon wrapped on top of solid satin. Finished lei length is 42" long.  

If you wish to make one,  instructions can be found when you visit the island of Hawaii (Oahu) - refer to the name of this lei for instructions and their specialty ribbons.  Check out the retail store and schedule lessons at U'I Mau A Mau LLC.  They do have a website: There are many types of lei samples on their site but in person hands on instructions are a must in order to complete the first lei.  But if you can't make it to the Island and live on the West Coast, contact  Chris Tanizawa at for FREE lei making classes in Union City, California. She has various lei kits for purchase and has a schedule for her classes but will not have this specific lei style.
