Barkcloth in Micronesia
Art Historical Description
Micronesia is not known to be a barkcloth-producing area. A few tapa cloths in museums have been attributed to Micronesia, though these are likely to be mis-attributions. However the area is known for its rich fibre arts, and there appear to be aesthetic links between these and tapa from the north of western Polynesia.
