WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?
Growing up in Tonga was a lifetime lesson. I was always taught to always remember my humble beginning. Now that I am older and in college with choices, I choose to share my culture and who I am with the world. There is nothing more stronger in cultures but symbols. From the heart of Polynesia, designs bears meanings. I like to carry those symbols with me as a reminder. These ties defines me and my people. I think it is to be shared and for others to enjoy. In one piece of material lies my heritage and all that are close to my heart. A taste of Polynesia with you.
WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED?
These ties are made from 100% polyester. We chose polyester because it allows the ties to be machine washed and faster to dry yet still with complete great condition. The thickness that the polyester material brings project the designs on the ties and makes it definitely noticeable.
WHY POLYNESIAN DESIGN?
Polynesian culture is rich in RESPECT and LOVE. I feel like that this is what the world needs right now.
This is also who I am. The real me. Embracing development has always been an issue with Polynesia with the fear of losing our culture. With this project I know that development and culture can blend well together. It’s a way to embrace development while not diming my identity.
