Coconut Palm Frond Weaving


A thoughtful look at a long-time palm tree frond weaver named Moku. He has been weaving fronds for 10 years, and it is quite fascinating to watch him form various animals, headbands, and roses in a matter of moments from a regular palm tree frond. Watch him create in this picturesque setting by the sea in Lahaina. *Filmed in Maui, Hawaii

nicely done one of my favorites it looks like something that could be seen on pbs. i liked the closeups and i liked that you included his explanation of his crafts. the music was a little cheesy but fitting ;)

I used some music from a Hawaiian compilation a friend gave me. I do not remember the name of the group. :)
