Tapa cloth

Isn’t it odd how you don’t see an item you love and then it pops up a few times? Tapa cloth is so beautiful to me. I really like that living in New Zealand there is a Pacific Island/ Maori / Pakeha fusion. And I like mixing  those elements with a retro look.

Yesterday I found two tapa cloth pieces. The first was a tray, and the second I bought from a private seller for $12.

This has a real Christmas feel. Pacific Island indigenous  art is so undervalued. Lucky me!
