The next in my Tatau series, this design features the islands of Samoa filled with traditional Samoan tatau designs and motifs. This print represents my pride in my Samoan heritage, depicting the islands that my Nana and Grandpa were born and raised. My Nana comes from the village of Talimatau on Upolu, and my Grandpa comes from the village of Saipipi on Savai’i. This print was designed completely freehand.
This print is hand carved, then hand printed on 100% cotton 90lb/250gsm acid free Stonehenge white paper using traditional black block printing ink, measuring 9x12in.
*Note: Because all items are handprinted in small batches, there may be small variations in color and placement - that’s the beauty of handmade!
