I am seling a Large Samoan Fine Mat (Ie Toga)

I also have a slightly smaller one than this one that I will be posting up as soon as I get a pic

They can be described as "ie lelei, ie mamae, ie vaivai"
...fair in colour and fine...decorated traditionally in Dyed chicken feathers

Measurements will be posted once I get them.

Made from very soft 'Lauie'-which is the innerlayers of the 'Laufala' flax tree.
Woven using traditional samoan method. This traditional process involves peeling back layers of flax leaves, boiling it & leaving them out to dry in the sun. This process is repeated until a silky fine texture like fabric is achieved to give the sheer finish & intricate detail that can be seen in the finish product.


Perfect for those who need (or will need) a large mat for a special ocassion or those who love Pacific Island artwork and craft.

Pls pass on to who you think might be interested...
