coco_bag The lauhala roll, or laufala, as it is known in Samoa, is made of approximately 60 leaves. The leaves are soft and pliable suitable for weaving, costumes and crafting projects. Each leaf is approximately 39 inches (1 meter) and averages about 2 1/2 inches in width. Imported. Product of Samoa.

The long thin leaves come from the Pandanas tree. There are many varieties in the South Pacific islands and they have slight differences in color, lengths, widths and pliability. Most leaves have thorns that require a labor-intensive process to be removed. After that, they are soaked in water to clean and soften. Then they are dried and flattened. From there, they are gathered and rolled together for storage.

* measurements are approximates.
