THE ORIGIN OF TAPA CLOTH (MASI):  Tapa cloth is made from mulberry bark, which, after being peeled in long strips from the tree, is
scraped away from the white inner fibres.  The strips of the fibre are dried, soaked and pounded until they become wide and very
flexible.  A number of strips are then felted together to form a fine white cloth ready to be decorated with home-made dyes.  the
brown shade is made from the bark of trees and black from the soot of burnt candle nuts, red from red clay.  Tapa cloth plays an
important part in religious rites and ceremonial gift giving in the Pacific Islands.  Different Fijian Islands have their own distinctive
tapa designs and patterns.  We hope you will experience this sample of the South Pacific culture.
