In Tonga, they came up with the idea of this handmade craft to cover themselves from being naked and to respect the others especially the chiefs. This craft was invented by the sailors that were hit by a storm at sea while they were fishing, and had their clothes torn badly. They had to tear off the sheet of their canoe to cover themselves for they will enter the Kings sight. This started from that day they entered and this King really appreciated and admired the humble sacrifice that this fisherman did to show their respect in reaction to the most important people like him.
