My name is Fiona Aumetua Broadbent the owner, operator and creator of Fiona's Pareu Cook Islands.

Living on the beautiful island of Rarotonga I wanted to create my own business utilising my artist talents. So I started by conceptualising and creating my design for a Pareu printing board of which I then carved (2 by 1 yard size). I was inspired by my surroundings, my culture, my family and my life experiences.

My mother Tungane Broadbent, an artist of Cook Islands Tivaevae owns Hut#45 at the Punanga Nui Market located in the CBD Avarua. This gave me a retail outlet to sell my Pareu to the many visitors that frequent our islands all year round (Well until Covid-19 that is).

I make each and every Pareu I sell, from the design to the printing even hemming the fabric, as my saying goes "They are all locally made because I make them and I'm locally made too!" because not everyone has the privilege to state.

I hope you enjoy my Podcast with Chantal and Hayden.

My last note is 'We are still here, here is still Paradise and Paradise is waiting for you'.

Thank you, Fiona
