I have traveled all over the world and have had quite a few Pareos, but nothing compares to these.The quality is fantastic and the prices are reasonable for what you are getting. I suggest you go for the rayon 2 meter ones ($25 apiece). The silk screening and designs are just spectacular. Many people had reserved some of the pareos,... More

It is the best place to buy clothes in Maharepa, Moorea. The town itself is very small. The woman who runs this is very friendly and knowledgeable. You can try on clothes in the back of the store.

The owner/manager was friendly, very helpful and no pressure as we figured out our souvenir needs. Good selection of unique and high quality merchandise at a reasonable price. We came back a second day because of how nicely we were treated. The rooster, hens and chicks in the large front yard made it perfect.
