Hoist the Flag
In 1970, our Kuila (Fiji flag) was raised for the first time. There were a vast number of people present, including young children and the elderly, some of whom were our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, coming from near and far, from different cultures to witness this historic moment.

As a proud Fiji owned local business, we are humbled to have once again sewn and produced our Fiji Day 2022 products right here at home.
Our Fijian sewn products have not only helped create opportunities for our community but also supported the economy of our country.
