Fijian Wedding Dress

Similar with Samoan wedding dress, Fijian Wedding Dress was made of the bark of a Mulberry Tree. The tapa costumes are all raw fiber but soft enough to bend and shape. 

The tapa is decorated with traditional patterns of black, brown and white symbolizing the region or part of Fiji where the tapa was made from (Namuka I Lau). Some of the more rare tapas are painted with different shades of soil and clay. 

The costumes are 3-tiered and made up of a single piece around the waist, another single piece around the mid-section and a plain sash around the chest.
