You might want to consider "Arts of the Pacific Islands" by Anne D'Alieva
(available from Crizmac). Crizmac also has sample tapa cloth you can
purchase.

I couldn't find much online that had images of Samoan art - but here is what
I turned up in a quick Google search.

Here is a link to Siapo - also known as tapa cloth
http://www.siapo.com/
