Souvenirs from Solomon Islands

Souvenirs from the Solomon Islands are reflective of the tropical atmosphere and surroundings. Pandanus leaves and coconut palms are woven into baskets, purses, hats and rugs, perfectly charming and lightweight. Wooden carvings of local gods, huts, and canoes can give a rustic touch to a modern office, while mother of pearl bowls will give a romantic touch to vanities. Sharks are a very popular motif, as they are believed to be the reincarnated souls of fishermen. Malaita used shells for currency, and has been turned into necklaces and bracelets. Shells are also used to make tribal breastplates, headbands, and nose rings. Carved wooden flutes, combs and flutes make great Solomon Islanders souvenirs, as well as bags woven from the Asa vine. Of course, the best way to share your vacation experiences and memories may be through postcards, fridge magnets and T-shirts emblazoned with local landmarks, scenic vistas and sunny sayings.
