About Crafts by Vai

Welcome to Crafts by Vai, where creativity and passion intertwine to bring you handmade treasures inspired by the beauty of Bora Bora. We are delighted to share our unique collection of crocheted items and Polynesian-themed jewelry, designed with love and care by Vaitiare Tairua.

Driven by Kindness, Creativity, and Community

Crafts by Vai is more than just a business; it's a reflection of Vaitiare's journey, values, and commitment to making a positive impact. Vaitiare, a kind-hearted and thoughtful non-binary individual, calls Bora Bora home. The vibrant Polynesian culture and stunning landscapes have always been a wellspring of inspiration for their creations.

A Spark of Creativity During Challenging Times

When the world was faced with the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vaitiare sought solace in creativity. It was during this time that they discovered the art of crocheting, a craft that ignited their imagination and unleashed a flood of innovative ideas. What started as a simple hobby quickly blossomed into a full-fledged passion, and Crafts by Vai was born.

Inclusivity and Support for the LGBTQ+ Community

Vaitiare's dedication to fostering a more inclusive world extends beyond their craft. As a valued volunteer in the vibrant LGBTQ+ community in Henderson, Nevada, they actively contribute their time and energy to creating safe spaces and promoting understanding. Crafts by Vai proudly supports and embraces the LGBTQ+ community, with a commitment to providing high-quality products that celebrate diversity and self-expression.

Every item you find at Crafts by Vai has been lovingly crafted by hand. From the adorable amigurumi creations like cute musubi and boba tea, to the exquisite jewelry adorned with puakenikeni and pikake, each piece is a testament to Vaitiare's dedication to their art and the artistry of Polynesian craftsmanship.
