Where to buy Wau Bulan

Q:

Hi Tim,
Just like to know if you know where can I buy 10 pieces of wau bulan for an event that I am organizing.

Hope you can share with me how to get these beautiful kites.

Thanks in advance!

A:

Since these are traditional hand-made kites, it's hard to find sources online. I did come across 2 places that sell more commercial varieties...

If you can track down a kite master in your own country, you might be able to find a source via word of mouth.

Otherwise, there is a tremendous amount of kite making and selling activity just across the water in Singapore. Do you have any contacts over there who could get in touch with some kite vendors or shop owners? These kites would not be the 'real deal' most likely, but could well look enough like the real thing to fit your purpose.

Sorry I can't be of better help...
