Hawaiian quilting uses a unique "snowflake" method for its design inspired by a technique taught by the missionaries. Along with its beautiful patterns, Hawaiian quilts are said to carry the spirit of the person creating it. To give a quilt is to give of one's self.

Tapa cloth is a traditional handicraft and art form from the Polynesian Islands. Tapa is made exclusively from the under bark of the paper mulberry tree, which is then beaten into thin sheets on a hard wood log with a tapa beater. The beat of the tapa beaters and the songs that they sing is still fascinating to listen to. Tapa has been used for centuries for clothing and decorating of village houses, ceremonial purposes and gift giving for weddings, royalty and honored visitors.
