Forest Leaves Bookmark

$7.50

説明

Fiji is a tropical island paradise complete with lush rainforests.  This hand-painted Forest Leaves bookmark, made from traditional Fijian barkcloth or 'masi' comes in 4 colours:

- Turquoise & purple

- Blue & purple

- Green

- Brown/orange. 

Fijian ‘masi’ is produced by village women on islands such as Vatulele. A renewable resource, masi is made by harvesting strips of bark from specially grown paper-mulberry trees. Each piece takes days to process, involving repeated pounding, soaking and stretching. These traditional skills are passed on from generation to generation, with certain clans being considered the experts in masi-making. The uneven quality of the masi reflects its handmade origin.

 

Masi bookmark is mounted on black card, which can be gently removed from backing when ready to use.
