With more than 360 women artisans in one place, there was always going to be an opportunity to learn from each other.
For Siteri Namoro from Naqara Village in Naitasiri, the Central Division Craft Show provides just that as well as a whole new market to sell her handmade products.
“Mats, like some people, are making the big one, the Ico Ico and the Somo, weaving them inside, they’re very interesting for me to see them.”
Namoro joins women from across the Central Division over the next two days at Sukuna Park to sell their handmade products.

Of the 365 women vendors, 120 of them will be selected based on the quality of their products to showcase their wares at the National Women’s Expo in June.
The Central Division Craft show is the final event after similar shows were staged across the country.
