Jacket, mans (jacket (garment); Unknown; ca. 1900; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; FE001055/1)
Note: Based on the distinctive yellow and red woven material from which it is made, this military jacket is believed to have originated from Tuvalu. This colour combination appears in other well-documented examples of weaving from the area. Jackets and shirts were introduced to the Pacific by nineteenth-century missionaries and sailors. Military jackets, hats, and regalia were sought after by people in some Pacific societies as symbols of social status.
