Tapa cloth - Tonga

Ngatu - Tapa cloth from Tonga. Tongan tapa cloth

Tapa cloth is made of bark of the mulberry tree. The bark is stripped off and pounded flat in such a way that it spreads into a cloth. Tongan carvers usually paint onto the tapa cloth. 

We feature a couple of turtle designs and other Pacific designs and patterns from Tonga.
