And because of its natural presence, color plays a huge part in Samoan culture. The country's traditional fabric is worn at every gathering and these locally designed and locally made fabrics are a clear depiction of the island’s colorful natural wonders.

After spending 2 years in Samoa as a Peace Corps volunteer, its islands, its people and their colorful way of life have added Samoa color to Kiana’s life. And that was something she wanted to share with you too….
