Feel Good Friday

The Pacific islands of Samoa are chock-full of vibrant colors. From the surrounding ocean to its forested land, colors flourish through the islands. 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.

 

From the surrounding ocean's miraculous blues...

PS.  Plus a few more fabric finds from other travelers who found colors in distant places...
