Papua New Guinea is known as the last frontier and is still being discovered. Despite  the intrusion of the modern age, its people still practice the ways of their forefathers, in terms of active participation in their tradition and culture.
With the introduction of Christianity, we see much of it (tradition and culture) fading away as Christian ethics and values takes over.
The most notable is the change of traditional clothes to modern clothes. Not only that, religious ethics also demand decent dressing from faithful followers.



Helplessly, we gradually watch our traditional clothes change hands with the modern clothes. The knowledge of methods as to how they're made is also disappearing fast. 

As we move into the 21st century, much of today's generation have a vague or otherwise no knowledge of how their ancestors dress.

In the quest to continually preserve that tradition, Post PNG through the Philatelic Bureau, continue to assist by featuring some of the many Traditional Clothes of Papua New Guinea on stamps.
