Item details

This gorgeous piece of vintage fabric is in a design which is called Tapa sometimes people refer to it as tiki fabric or hawaiin fabric as well. But it is technically Tapa Cloth in terms of its design.

Tapa cloth is a bark cloth made in the islands of the Pacific Ocean, primarily in Tonga and Samoa, but as far afield as Java, New Zealand, Papua, New Guinea, and Hawaii. Tapa can be painted in patterns that form a grid of squares, each of which contains geometrical patterns with repeated motifs such as fish and plants. In former times the cloth was primarily used for clothing, but now cotton and other textiles have replaced it. Nowadays Tapa is still often worn on formal occasions such as weddings or in a decorative capacity in ones home.

This particular piece is very much like a bark cloth, but the weave is less tight almost like a burlap in its weave. It seems like the design has been applied to the fabric rather than woven in, which makes this a Tapa.

Dimensions: ~45" wide x about 92" long. This is a good large piece for your next project.

Colors: Browns, reds and golds.

Condition: Excellent condition. This piece looks as if it were stored away for years!!!

Please see photos.

Packages are usually shipped within 5 business days of payment clearance on the Monday following payment clearance. Occasionally, I may do a mid-week shipment, but most often shipments are sent on Monday.

We ship internationally, but a personal shipping quote is required. International shipments are shipped via Priority Mail so that they can be tracked. We cannot ship any cheaper method (USPS 1st class mail does not have the ability to track the item.) for international orders. If your international purchase is over $250, per Paypal, we are required to have signature confirmation on $250+ shipments. The only USPS method that allows for the signature is Global Express.

Depending on the product, we ship via the following methods in the United States:

* USPS (Priority Mail, Parcel Post, 1st class and Media Mail)
