Back in 2014 there was an amazing gallery exhibit of crochet from Tuvalu and people began to pay attention to the history and art of the craft in that region. Since that time, not much has been published online, but it’s worth a look back at that exhibit to get some inspiration!

Tuvalu is a Polynesian island chain; many women from the nation also live in New Zealand. They call crochet items “kolose” and have a history of crafting colorful crochet to wear and to decorate the home.
