Pandanus Rolls


Polynesia within reach of your creations !

Braiding is originally a specialty of the Austral Islands, but today there are woven articles throughout Polynesia.
The vegetable raw material is 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.

Pandanus is part of Polynesian culture

On the shores of the coral islands of Polynesia, Pandanus is a shrub that is part of the Polynesian culture.
We find its iconic name through legends highlighting each part of the tree. In Polynesian society the Pandanus tree is used in its entirety.

Indeed, the leaves are used for the implementation of traditional roofs but also for that of many braided objects.
Its red and fragrant fruits are used in wreaths and flower necklaces.
Some varieties were sacred (tapu) and their drupes were reserved for the manufacture of necklaces for the only idols or tiki in the Marquesas Islands.
The flowers of the male inflorescence "Hinano", are used to perfume the flower necklaces and also the monoi. Pandanus wood, although little used, is however a very beautiful effect in tableting and marquetry.

We roll essentially the long-leaved pandanus (the other pandanus, short-leafed, is only used for "Fare" ).
These leaves, about ten centimeters wide and about two meters long, are stripped of their central vein and coarsely braided together for drying for three weeks to a month.
They are first hung on the roof of houses or in trees before being spread on the ground. Once dried, the leaves are wound on each other to form rolls about 40 cm in diameter or about fifty leaves per roll.

Tahitian Pareos


A symbol heritage

Carried for centuries by the Maohi people, the sarong of the islands, formerly called paréu, went around the world like the ideal beach suit, under all suns.
Local craftsmanship claims more than ever its Polynesian origin.

Note: The sarongs are "handmade", the colors can be more nuanced from one sarong to another.
