Handicraft attraction

FIJIAN-made handicraft items continue to sell like hot cakes overseas.

The products recently attracted significant interest at the "Positively Pasifika Festival 2014" organised by the Wellington City Council on January 18.

An Information Ministry statement said finely woven baskets, mats and intricately designed masi took pride of place at the Fiji High Commission exhibition at the Fiji "village".

"These items, carrying the 'Fijian Crafted' brand were sourced from producers in Fiji in collaboration with the Fiji Arts Council," the statement said.

Fiji High Commission acting head of mission Mere Tora said it was the first time the mission was participating at such an event.

"This is a wonderful way to promote 'Fijian Made' products to the wider community.

"We are picking up on the interests shown at the festival and will explore further how Fijian crafts can benefit from these interests," Ms Tora said.
