Pareo Perso lets you design your own Polynesian skirt in the traditional way--having the sun affix colors, patterns, and images to the fabric. Through this process, known as heliography, you draw a rectangle in the sand to size your pareo, choose your colors, and, if you wish, select one of the stencil designs that Lise has created and cut by hand. After everything is in place, the sun does the rest by printing your the colors and stencils onto the fabric. Note that this activity remains weather-dependent, so you must show up from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM to see if the activity is possible rather than book in advance. Your finished pareo will be machine washable (cold wash and rinse). To visit Pareo Perso on your holiday in Papetoai, and find out what else Papetoai has to offer, use our Papetoai.
