Product Description

Samoa is a country of great natural beauty and has, over a millennia, evolved a rich and distinguished culture. The mainstay of this culture and the profusion of expressions emanating from it, is the natural environment. Samoans had a kinship relationship with the contingent world, living in harmony with the natural resources that provided for their wellbeing. The discovery and use of natural fibres supplied the building blocks that sustained the Samoan way of life. Inquisitive and intelligent, early settlers in the island archipelago adapted the knowledge they brought with them with succeeding generations refining and building on that knowledge with new and innovative uses. This short film explores the use of natural fibres in Samoa and its importance to life and culture in the islands. It has a particular emphasis on the making and use of 'afa' or coconut sennit and is the second in a series of films exploring the inspired wealth of this remarkable tree. Total running time: 17 minutes
