Mothers, daughters and granddaughters all take part, with a skill that comes from years of practice. The inner bark of the paper-mulberry tree provides the fabric for the traditional cloth that can still be seen in most homes. It is stripped from a 3 inch diameter stalk and soaked in water, then pounded thinly and evenly with a traditional 4 sided mallet. When enough of the single sheets are ready they are glued together with arrowroot or tapioca into a completed cloth that may attain a length of 25 meters!!!! Natural dyes are rubbed over the relief patterns to transfer the designs. Originally, the patterns and designs were family crests and symbols but today they're freely interpreted by the artists. When the pattern is dry, the decorative outlines are highlighted by hand with a natural brush made from the fruit of the Pandanus Tree. Tongan families once measured their wealth by the amount of tapa cloths and mats they could produce. These cloths are still the gift to give at births, deaths or marriages. These newlyweds are displaying their wedding gifts all the way to their new home. The woven mat skirts worn here by the bridal couple and the guests are another traditional craft. The mats are worn on formal occasions and whenever a Tongan wishes to show respect. The older the mat, the more highly prized.
