A resilient lei is made from materials that will last a long time and can withstand being handled. Resilient leis are often chosen for times when the lei will be worn for a long period or for children. Some resilient leis are unscented or have little scent, and some wearers prefer this type. A resilient lei is also perfect when you have more than one occasion and want to wear your lei again. If your event will keep you moving for hours, a resilient lei is perfect for the movement and handling. They are also a good choice when you will be outside in the heat for hours, as many delicate leis will wilt in the heat.
