"Siva sāmoa has always been a love of mine.

I find peace whenever creating & watching it all come together. My style has always been my own homage to my upbringing in Tutuila & Southern California.


My Samoan culture gives me depth & purpose, while my L.A. culture gives me ferocity & glamour.

TAMA'ITA'I for me is exactly that, two totally different consistencies that when paired, are just magical. The bread & the butter.


So jungle yet so Hollywood."

Siva Sāmoa
