Fiji Shopping





Arts and crafts
Arts and crafts can be purchased from three different sources,private craftspeople, shops and the public markets. The least expensive source is generally from individuals, but these people are hard to find because they usually live in remote villages. Shops are the easiest way to purchase handicrafts but are more expensive and there is a reason for it. The better shops choose their merchandise carefully and must pay top dollar for quality goods. One may also purchase handicrafts at the larger public markets. Prices are generally reasonable at the markets but the quality varies greatly.


Sigatoka River
Fiji artisans produce fine masi (tapa cloth) and excellent carvings that include bowls and replicas of Fijian artifacts such as cannibal forks. Woven items include baskets, mats, purses, fans and the like. Traditional clay pots and crockery can also be purchased in shops and at several pottery villages along the Sigatoka River.


Tiki Togs
Our charter was to develop attractive holiday and resort wear with a distinctive Fijian and South Pacific look and style. The garments manufactured were aimed at what was then and still is, a rapidly growing tourist industry.

All Tiki Togs garments are hand screen printed with original designs and motifs on a variety of fabrics which are imported from other parts of the fashion world.


Jack's Handicraft
Jack's is the largest handicrafts retailer in the South Pacific. Our flagship store, located in downtown Nadi, has a comprehensive array of traditional South Pacific art including tapa cloth(known in Fiji as masi), wooden bowls, baskets, mats, paintings and replicas of museum artifacts. They take special care in purchasing carvings and handcrafted goods from only the finest artisans to assure the best possible quality.

For the shopper, Jack offers much more than handicrafts. We also feature a large selection of jewelry, gems, watches, sports clothing, bula shirts, t-shirts and other souvenirs. In addition to their store in downtown Nadi, they have shops in Sigatoka, Suva and outlets at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, Sheraton Royal Denarau Resort, Fiji Mocambo and The Warwick Fiji.
