Young coconut leaves bleached white. Polynesians have a use for just about every part of the coconut tree. This is one of the more decorative and creative uses. Dancers have been known to decorate Tahitian headdresses with niau (coconut) blanc, creating a stunning visual contrast and texture to the color dyed hau, shells, and seeds. Soft and pliable, the niau blanc can be twisted, braided, woven and left natural.

Sold by the bunch. 20 sets of approximately 12 leaves each.
