tonga_tapa

Tonga is the largest producer of tapa cloth in Polynesia, for that matter, the world. As such, you are certain to find it wherever you go in Tonga. Ngatu, or tapa as it is known in English, is part of every important occasion in Tongan life. In the modern uses, it continues its importance and has evolved into a cherished art as well. Carvings in wood, drumming, dancing and singing have also nurtured artisans to bring creative arts. Discover the "friendly islands" with us today.
