The red, black and white colours represent stories of the past and traditions

Kōwhaiwhai (curvilinear surface design) is the ancient art of painted traditions by Māori. As an art form, kōwhaiwhai is distinctively Māori, most often seen on the meeting house ridgepole (tāhuhu) and on the rafters (heke). Kōwhaiwhai 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.
