Braiding is originally a specialty of the Austral Islands, but today there are woven articles throughout Polynesia. The vegetable raw materialis mainly used is the Pandanus, but the coconut leaf (niau) or the local bamboo (ofe) are also braided.
Articles made are traditionally hats , baskets or mats (peue). With the development of handicrafts and tourism, Polynesian weaving has evolved into a greater diversity of articles . We now find purses, cigarette cases, fans, bracelets, sandals, earrings, etc. Nevertheless, carpets (baskets), baskets and hats still constitute the bulk of production.
