Tapa making is a traditional craft practiced across the pacific islands mainly by tribal women and used as a clothing item or household décor articles. Our Tapa collection was born by mixing modern design concepts along with age old techniques of tapa craft. The hand beaten fibrous texture from the mulberry tree, superimposed with natural pigments in the form of tribal motifs becomes the central feature of these products.
