Liku Villager Proud To Show Off Masi Designs From Lau

Makereta Qoli, 39, of Liku Village in Nayau Island, Lau, was proud to show off her talent of creativity.

Ms Qoli was one of the 500 participants at the third Fiji National Women’s Expo 2017 at Vodafone Arena in Suva yesterday.

She said sometimes, the sales were not as much due to high competition from the other participants in the expo.

“It was very difficult for us to be able to sell all our products because we brought over handmade masi which other participants also had,” she said.

“The difference between their items and ours was the design on the masi and the prices as we had a lower price for the masi than others.

“It takes a lot of hard work and time to make the masi and more importantly make the unique different designs on the masi because it takes a lot of time to be precise on the artworks.

“All our masi represent the four different islands of the Lau Group and all different designs are the motifs of the islands that we come from.

“But overall, the expo was fantastic as we got to have a lot of fun, singing and dancing also witnessing the fashion show as well.

“We will surely take a lot of good memories back home to sit around and talk about,” Ms Qoli said.

The expo closed yesterday.
