This luxurious soft linen scarf features ‘I he ‘api o ‘eku Tamai/ In My Father’s House by Robin White, Ruha and Ebonie Fifita and the women of Haveluoto village, Tongatapu, Tonga. This wall-based fuatanga (large, rectangular ngatu/ tapa cloth) is inspired by the Tongan design, the Hala Paini (Pathway of Pines), which symbolises the road lined with Norfolk Pines leading from the King’s Palace in Nuku‘alofa to the royal tombs. White and her collaborators extend the concept of hala (pathway) to connect past and present, the everyday and the transcendental, which is now available as an elegant piece of wearable art.
