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.
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.
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.
