STYLE QUILTS® TAHITIAN TIARE COLLECTION
Approximately fifteen Tifaifai Pa’oti or Tifaifai Tapiri (designs created from one piece of fabric) are extremely popular in the Society Islands. One of these, perhaps the most popular of all, is the “Tahitian Flower” (Tiare Tahiti). Almost invariably, a woman creates the design in white on green to imitate the natural color of the flower. While the color combination of the tifaifai rarely varies, there are endless individual interpretations of the flower motif. There are similar variations for all popular appliqué designs throughout eastern Polynesia. You can also check out our Tifaifai page.
