Formerly "Afakasi Prints". Please note the online shop is temporarily closed while I settle in Aotearoa. New products & designs to come when I reopen! Fa'afetai tele lava.
The next in my Tatau series, this design features the country of Aotearoa filled with traditional Samoan tatau designs and motifs. I am a proud New Zealand-American, as my father was born and raised on the North Island, and this print represents my heritage and my pride for being both Samoan and a citizen of Aotearoa. 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 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!
