The Kingdom of Tonga (Ancient Polynesia) is an archipelago
of 170 plus coral and volcanic islands scattered over 700,000
square kilometres of ocean.
Traditional Tonga clothing is made of Tapa Cloth made by pounding
the inner bark of the Mulberry tree. Tongan dyes are made according
to old traditions: Brown dye is obtained from either the bark
of the mangrove tree or the kukui nut tree, and black dye by
boiling brown dye with red hibiscus flowers.
These bracelets are my interpretation of two border designs
on Tongan cloth.
This is another of my "just patterns" e-books. There
are no instructions or color keys. I offer these in their "just
patterns" form in order to give you lots of pretty patterns
at a very reasonable price.
Beads: Delicas or other cylinder beads
Stitch: Odd Count Flat Peyote
