Art by Saumolia - My paintings reflect an evolvement and range of who I am. They are personal, abstract, and passionately tell the story of my triumphs, heartbreaks, and love. The primary foundation of my work is inspired by the patterns and colors found in nature. With all my art, I approach the blank canvas as a method of self-therapy, a very liberating and important process of my work. Art by Saumolia is a freestyle of thoughts, memories, and emotions layered by shapes, colors, and patterns-- all reminiscent of traditional designs and motifs inspired by my Sāmoan heritage.
Living Koko - creates small-batch indulgent yet healthy food, beverage and body care products - all made from ethically sourced organic cacao (koko). We collaborate directly with small-plot farmers in Samoa and other Pacific Islands to use only the richest and purest cacao for our vegan, allergy safe and gluten-free products.
Masina Creative - Amanda Stowers, the Sāmoan artist behind Masina Creative, based in Eastbourne, Aotearoa. My mahi is made with the intention to build deeper understanding, appreciation and visible representation for my culture. I have always been a creative, with interests in many different mediums from an early age. I work mostly with clay, creating handmade ceramic pieces hand carved with Sāmoan tatau and siapo motifs, with each motif being chosen for their meaning within Sāmoan culture.

We are also proud of the connections we have made in Samoa, dealing directly with amazing locals who we work closely with to bring you some beautiful, ethically sourced, handmade items, allowing them to support their families financially in the process.
Moana Chips - Moana translates to “blue” or “ocean” in the Samoan language. For thousands of years, ancient Polynesians voyaged across the vast, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean – the Moana. They relied on taro as one of their food sources and were able to cultivate this nutrient-rich root throughout Polynesia. To this day, taro remains a food staple in the islands of the moana. With Moana Taro Chips, we want to spread our love for taro with the rest of the world. Harvested using the same traditional techniques, Moana Taro Chips are the perfect complement to poke, salsa, guacamole or just eat them straight out of the bag! Rich in fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamins, Moana Taro Chips are an amazingly delicious gourmet snack. A true taste of paradise, straight from the heart of Polynesia!
