Seini - Ngatu Earrings

All Koloa pieces are named after a member of their family and are organised by generation to align with the style.

The Seini earrings are a stunning half moon design and are named after one of the daughters. Kalisi had six daughters, including their mother; this pair is named after the ever graceful Seini.

In this pair of earrings, the cloth is white as it is unpainted (ngatu is painted barkcloth in Tonga; tapa is the unpainted cloth). They show off the amazing fibres of the cloth that have been beaten over many months of collective work. These earrings are made from a ngatu that belonged to Seini’s sister, Nia. 

MATERIAL: Tapa - Unpainted beaten mulberry cloth + Resin. Ngatu - Painted barkcloth + Resin
HOOKS: Gold Plated Stainless Steel
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: We recommend you care and gently handle your item, treat it like the koloa (treasure) it is. To clean the item, use a damp cloth and let air dry. Avoid oils and moisturisers.
TO NOTE: Measurements are approximate. The items are handmade so there will be variance between each item as they are made from handmade and handpainted materials; each piece intends to showcase the skill of Tongan / Moana Pacific artisans who made the original works
