Batwing dress (Short Sleeve), Orange - Tāniko


Back by popular demand is our Batwing Dress, a comfortable casual dress made here in Aotearoa.

Print Design: Tāniko Print

Tāniko designs express histories, ideas and values important in Te Ao Maori (The Māori World). 

This is our tāniko pattern that represents Ranginui and Tawhirimatea, initially created for my whānau (Te Kiri), but now used for the Nichola brand.  It speaks to the connection we have with the elements.


This garment is our Batwing Dress.  The fitting of this garment is oversized, so they are very roomy. If you're not a fan of having an oversized garment, we would recommend you choose a size down from your normal size e.g. If you are normally a size 14 (RUA), we would recommend a size Tahi. 

The length of this garment for most is above the knee (depends on your height) and it has long sleeves.


Our model Becky (long hair) is wearing a size RUA (14-16)

Sizing: This garment was created using our sizing guide, we create the garments to sit between two sizes, for a bit of flexibility in the sizing range:

TAHI: Size 10 - 12

RUA: Size 14 - 16

TORU: Size 18 - 20

WHA: Size 22 - 24

Fabric details: Rayon

Care instructions: 

We recommend washing in a machine with cold water.  Gentle wash using mild detergent and do not use any washing detergents that contain bleach.

Once washed, dry garment flat. Do not hang or put in direct sunlight or it will fade and/or lose its shape.
