Trobriand Island carvings are famous throughout the whole of PNG. A master carver is a position of high prestige in the Trobriands and it's a role bestowed upon people at birth.

Other than wood carvings (found in most villages) and lime pots, you can get shell money and doba (banana leaf money incised with patterns).

Artisans meet arriving planes hoping to sell their wares. They’ll also come and find you wherever you’re staying!
