Tapa Cloth
Description: An exquisite example vintage tapa cloth, made in the Pacific island of Tonga. It's made from the inner bark of the white mulberry tree. It is not stitched or sewn, but beaten together and then decorated with pattern blocks called "kupesi," which are rubbed into the cloth and painted over. Tapa is an integral part of Tongan culture and very important to the Tongan people. This tapa has some minor damage along one edge; see photo.
