If you wish to make one for a special event, instructions can be found when you visit the island of Hawaii (Oahu). Check out the retail store and schedule lessons at U'I Mau A Mau LLC. They do have a website: www.uimauamau.com. 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. The 1/8" Ombre Green ribbon can only be found from this store and they will galdly mail it out to you. But if you can't make it to the Island and live on the West Coast, contact Chris Tanizawa at email@example.com for FREE lei making classes in Union City, California. She has various lei kits for purchase and has a schedule for her classes.
