Kowhaiwhai (curvilinear surface design) is the ancient art of painted traditions by Maori. As an art form, kowhaiwhai is distinctively Maori, most often seen on the meeting house ridgepole (tahuhu) and on the rafters (heke). Kowhaiwhai patterns show an emphasis on the use of forms that represent growth seeds, the uncurling of the young fern frond, young curled leaves, shoots and branches.

Fabric: One metre of our fabric contains the equivalent of four plastic bottles. Printing using water based vegetable pigment inks.

Cushion Inner: Non allergenic and antibacterial, recycled PET fibre comes from 100% post consumer plastic bottles.
