Le Rosa Creations held a soft launch of its handicrafts last week Saturday at Fa’atoia. 

The launch was a combination of Le Rosa Creations handicrafts, which included hand bags, purses, and bags all created from the smaller design of the falamasi mat and the falamasi mat itself.  

Operations Manager, Petronilla Molio’o Mataeliga, said the project started in 2016. 

“We acknowledge the mat for it gave us the idea to try new things and through there, everything in display is from that. It was also appropriate to choose the date of launch before Mother’s Day,” she said. 

Petronilla said because she’s the eldest of five siblings, the project started from her grandmother because she created the falamasi and she had urged them to learn the skills of making the mat (falamasi). 

Petronilla also shared that it was through social media, like Facebook and Instagram, that their products were promoted, opening doors to overseas markets. 

The unveiling was not only for promotion, but also a chance for mothers who were invited to have a friendly catch up.
