The framework and colours of the Kelantan wau May 8, 2008

Posted by asianpixmen in Craft, Culture, Malaysia.

The art of kite making is still very much alive in Kelantan. Top picture shows the many colours of the Kelantan wau.

These are mainly for home decor. The real wau is much bigger and they are for competition purposes. The middle and bottom pictures show the skeletal framework of a wau and how it takes shape.

Hi there
Would like to purchase 5 traditional kites to be the deco of a Malaysian restaurant in England. Would you be so kind as to email to me the contact of where I can purchase this and get it shipped? I am located in Penang. Many I have found in Penang are not very “traditional” looking and not as beautiful as in the picture above.
Many thanks!

Cindy, you can try googling for traditional kites for sale in Malaysia. I am sure there are more than a few shops in Kelantan or Terengganu which are involved in selling this particular item.
