They are not exactly as pictured in these photos & if you need more, please contact me.
They have all been surf tumbled so you know that they are very very durable!
I used Hawaiian Paint Brushes when I taught Kindergarten. All children love these primitive little brushes. They vary in size from 1 1/2" to 3" in length.
They are from the female hala (Hawaiian) or pandanus also known as the screw pine. See the photos of several trees I saw in West Hawaii.
Here's some great information from www.native plants.hawaii.edu
"The dried keys (phalanges, drupes, fruits) were also used as brushes to apply dyes for painting, stenciling designs, and perfuming kapa.
The mature keys, often after falling from the female tree, were cleaned of nay remaining pulp by combing through the fibers with thin, pointed instruments such as bamboo (ʻohe), and the ends of the fibers cut off evenly. The hard upper end of the key served as a handle for the brush."
