Artefacts

Traditional Fijian artefacts provide glimpses of Fiji’s ancient culture and fascinating past.

Fans and baskets made from pandanus and coconut leaves, along with the fibre from coconut husks (sinnet) were some of the daily life necessities in the Fijian village.

A huge range of wooden weapons were used by Fijian warriors in warfare and ceremonies.

Today, you can buy Fijian artefacts from handicraft centres in cities and towns, roadside kiosks, select retail stores and from craftspeople who sell their wares in select resorts and hotels across Fiji.
