In the Handicraft Market of Hanga Roa, Rapa Nui, visitors can find many typical products and beautiful souvenirs. One of those stalls is Mahatua Store, a place with a lot of history since it was born from the hand of the koro (grandfather) Mahatua Pakarati, from whom his granddaughter Mahina inherited it.
If you visit Easter Island, do not miss the Mahatua Store stand, you will find it just entering through the main door of the Artisan Market, on Atamu Tekena Street. Mahina, together with her mother Estrella Pakarati will assist you with all her love and dedication, to help you find the best gifts and souvenirs for your visit. You will find the Anakena cosmetics line along with many other wonderful Polynesian jewelry products.
In the photo you can see Mahina with her mother showing the portrait of the koro Mahatua, who started Mahatua Store.
