Extremely excited about my Siapo fabric run! This is a mixture of Siapo, Malu, and Tatau Samoan motifs.

Tapa Sampler, made by John Williams.
Tapa is barkcloth made by felting wet inner bark fibre with a grooved wooden mallet. It comes in a wide variety of thicknesses, colours, designs, glazes and is sometimes even scented. It was, and is still, used to wrap/cover people, objects and architecture and exchanged as a form of soft wealth. Plus it's gorgeous!
