Mats are the most useful and basic item of property in Fijian culture. They are used as floor mats, for bedding, the laying out of food and for canoe sails. In days gone by the mats were often fringed with the bright feathers of the kula bird. Today, the fringes are almost always made of different brightly coloured pieces of wool.
