Description

The exceptional design on this rug draws upon the V&A’s collection of painted tapa cloth, made for millennia by Pacific Islanders. The beautiful decoration was created in Fiji in the 1800s on cloth that was made from the bark of the paper mulberry tree, Broussonetia papyrifera. Often taking on ceremonial significance, the extraordinary patterns are enjoyed for their abstraction as much as their symbolism.
