Ongoing Exhibition
The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County (NHMLAC) care for many tapa and woven mats—this online exhibition marks the first time the museum is providing access to the bulk of this collection. In partnership with advisors from Pacific Island communities in Southern California, we hope to introduce our collection of tapa and woven mats to a larger audience, as well as to create a useful resource for anyone with a connection to these stunning examples of Pacific Island cultural heritage.

 

Tapa (barkcloth) and woven mats made from plant fibers are produced in communities all over the world, but especially among the many cultures of the Pacific Islands. Historically used as clothing and body adornments, among other purposes, these fabrics symbolize respect, connection, and kinship, and are often made for and gifted at weddings, funerals, and other important life events.
