Handcrafted Island Essentials Boutique is the epitome of craftsmanship and cultural beauty inspired by the enchanting Fiji Islands. Sonam Sapra, the owner and designer, is a highly regarded, expert textile designer from Fiji who found her beginnings as a student of Parsons, the New School for Design in New York.
Sonam has since launched a textile design business committed to promoting Fiji’s Vanua (land and people) and culture, employing fashion as her vehicle. Her hand-drawn and digitally printed fabrics are showcased as raw fabric and resort-wear fashion pieces in her boutique at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa, Denarau Island.
Her designs are exclusive prints and digitally printed designs on silk cotton, organic cotton fabrics, and retail resort/relax wear for international customers visiting Fiji. She also designs sustainable kids’ clothes and fashion accessories from her wearable art fabric offcuts.
