Here's your perfect gift!!! .. ...

This (limited edition) Origami Star Lei has been sewn with double heavy duty thread (for strength) at a 41" length, using over 200 individual stars. Each star contains recycled paper inside (for duarability), covered with origami paper for a unique look.

... ..Just a suggestion, keep lei away from water! And if some stars become flat, carefully re-crease at the corners. Oh, and it's not a good thing to tug on it, its meant to be worn gently.

Thank you for looking, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to hit that contact button, to the right.

"How to Give a Lei
A lei is traditionally presented to another person by placing it around their neck and giving them a kiss on the cheek. Some say a more traditional and respectful way to present a lei is for the giver to to bow slightly and raise the lei in front of themselves, at about heart level, letting the other person take the lei and place it around their own neck. In modern times it is more common for the giver to place the lei around the recipient's neck along with a kiss. Note that it is considered bad luck to wear a lei you plan to give to someone else or for a pregnant woman to wear a closed a lei. Any lei can be made open and pregnant women should always wear an open lei.

How to Receive a Lei
It is disrespectful to decline a lei if one is offered to you. If you are allergic to any of the lei materials, or if you are not in a position to wear a lei that is presented (for example if you are playing amusical instrument) the lei should be put in a place of honor to show respect for the giver. A lei can be worn for any occasion or no occasion and it is fine for you to purchase your own lei.

How to Wear a Lei
A closed lei should be worn on the shoulders with half of it hanging in the front and half hanging in the back. An open lei is a lei with the ends left untied. An open lei should be centered on the back of the neck and worn with the ends hanging down the front. It is fine to wear more then one lei at a time. Graduating scholars often wear so many lei they can hardly see above them. If a lei has a ribbon it can be worn at the back of the neck or it can be won on the right side (if single) or on the left side (if married or unavailable). At graduation ceremonies sometimes the bow is moved from one side to the other along with the tassle of the graduation cap."
