WHENEVER I am overseas I try to learn a little about the indigenous arts and crafts. In Samoa I was hunting down tapa, or bark cloth. I was keen to see the cloth being made and printed, but had to suffice with a description of the process from the Museum of Samoa and notes from this publication, which I bought in country for much more than the Amazon price. I’m now Googling like crazy for another book by the same author on Pacific adornment. I dare say it will say little about the cute earrings I bought made from coconut shell. They’re hardly authentic tribal costuming, but they’re cute, aren’t they?
