Cultural Art

I love this art work! A friend bought it in Fiji about 40 years ago. It hangs in her living room on a gorgeous wall colour.

circa 5' x 6'

The Fijian masi cloth is made exclusively by women. They treat the bark of a Mulberry tree to make it soft and pliable before adding geometric designs.

The design motifs vary depending on the area it was made in. The designs can be printed, stencilled, dyed or painted free-hand.
