Revival Fine Mats
As we began to try to find experienced weaver, our finds were rather incredible and sorrowful, only four towns were still under construction, i.e. sow, and these were also not the delicately striped ie sow. They are very smooth, subtly weaved, Samoan mats. It has a particular place in Samoan civilization and inheritance with the roots of the first exquisite Matevers, which is retraced through generation after generation of verbal histories and legends to the town of Lefutu in Tutuila, American Samoa, and follows its tragic tale through its trip to the Kingdom of Tonga and back to Amoa in Savaii.
After years of storage, the very thinly weaved ie sewn looks like a cloth of almost the same standard as that made from finest satin. Its softeness is guaranteed by the exclusive use of reeds of a certain type of panda and by the specific preweaving of the reeds.
Throughout the ages, Weber and Materai all realized that the ie Samoa was important, and that the skill of preparing and making this artefact was the main reasons why it was so recognized in our world. We were touring all over Samoa with this amazing woman with very little money and means.
This was no straightforward job, as many girls felt at ease with the ie malo (hard mat), which was lighter to weave but did not look or felt like the genuine ie should be. Still today, Ie relics are held in high esteem in Samoan and Tongan cultures and are used for cultural exchanges and gifts as part of important initiation rituals and rituals such as marriages, burials and the bestowal of chieftain status.
