Meet the Makers Part 1

AVID measina melbourne NEIS

We have decided to do a series of blogs that feature the heart and soul of our company, the makers of our products.  Today we will be talking to Morwenna Petaia, owner of Measina Treasures of Samoa.  Morwenna is not only the owner of Measina, she has designed various products for the store as well as creating art pieces.

Measina Treasures of Samoa

What does your business do?

Measina Treasures of Samoa are an online business selling products made by Samoans all over the world and products that support Samoan causes.  Measina is also developing our party plans and fundraising services so that we are able to help even more people with our business.

Art Work

How long have you been in business?

Measina Treasures of Samoa officially opened our doors in January 2016, but the concept has been a dream in the making for many years.

Market Day

What made you start your business?

I went to a family reunion in Samoa in 2005 and didn’t leave Samoa for nine years after that.  Many different reasons resulted in the need for my family and I to move back to Australia, but my heart still longed for Samoa.  Having a development background I will always have the need to be doing something to make the world a better place, especially my island home Samoa.  After a discussion with a fellow returned AVID (Australian Volunteer for International Development) I was able to learn more about the NEIS (New Enterprise Incentive Scheme) program which allowed me to plan and learn what was necessary to bring my dream into reality.

SVSG Prizes

What makes your business special?

Measina Treasures of Samoa are a social enterprise.  That means we are more than just a business.  We see that helping others through our business is what makes our business special.  We have been able to assist the Polynesian Kids Community Language School with raising funds by selling their t-shirts in store and at markets, donating prizes for the Samoa Victim Support Group in Melbourne and Sydney and supporting the Street Smart Handbook so that the youth of Victoria are educated about drug and alcohol abuse and where they can turn to find help.

While our main objective is to help Samoans and Samoan causes we also believe that our store is an opportunity for us to share the Samoan culture and Samoa. Many times we hear of people complaining because someone has misinterpreted or misrepresented the Samoan culture, this is how Measina can help to clarify these misconceptions and show Samoa in all it's beauty.

Vavau Beach

What is your favourite thing to do in Samoa?

There are so many things to do in Samoa.  I think that most of my time was spent eating delicious food.  However, nothing can beat my all time favourite thing which is to lay on the beach in Vavau and eat food then jumping in the pristine water only to come out again and lay on the beach and eat.

Thank you to Morwenna for sharing the story of Measina Treasures of Samoa.  Stay tuned to meet more of our makers next week!

    It’s hurt when husband told you “I don’t need you in my life anymore.” My husband left me for another woman 3 months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Priest Salami that he can bring back lovers within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great spell caster on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still can’t believe it, because it highly unbelievable. Thank you Priest Salami for bringing back my husband and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for any one who might need the help of this great spell caster Here his contact.
