TO NOTE: Measurements are approximate. The items are handmade so there will be variance between each item as they are made from handmade and handpainted materials; each piece intends to showcase the skill of Tongan / Moana Pacific artisans who made the original works. Many of the pieces use natural components so some variance can also be attributed to this. Colour Variation - Please note while all measures are taken to ensure the colouring of our photos match the actual product, there may be slight variations due to device colour matching.
