Suva Curio & Handicraft Market

Arts & Crafts in Suva

Strap on your barter boots: this market has endless craft stalls and, if you know your stuff, can offer some fantastic deals. Just be aware that not many of the artefacts are as genuine as the vendor would like you to believe. Only pay what the object is worth to you. A 2.1m by 1.2m ibe (mat) goes for between $45 and $75 (depending on how fine the weaving is) and a completely plain white tapa cloth costs around $45 for a 3.6m by 0.6m length.
