Marshall Island Souvenirs

With the islands’ high unemployment and a general lack of education and employment opportunities, the purchase of souvenirs is a great way to support and show gratitude to local communities. In addition to the Elefa Handicraft Shops, dotted around Majuro are several souvenir stores, which usually stock beautiful hand-woven goods. Look for navigational stick charts, iep keke (baskets), woven Kili bags (a favorite style of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis), and necklaces and crown-like headbands, or wuts, made from shells. Note that bargaining over prices is often considered insulting.
