HAWAIIAN STYLE QUILTS  MAILE & ILIMA LEI COLLECTION
Maile (Alyxia oliviformis) is a twining vine or a sprawling shrub. The leaves are smooth and glossy, dark green on top and paler underneath. The leaves and bark have a pleasant fragrance (similar to that of vanilla) which is released when crushed or twisted.  Ilima (Sida fallax) is the flower of the island of Oahu and is a very popular lei flower. The flowers are strung into a lei and takes several hundreds of the paper thin blossoms to make a single lei.
