Earrings, Tāniko I


Design meaning: Tāniko, is a uniquely Maori variation of whatu (twining) and was used to weave the colourful, intricate borders of Cloaks.  In Cloak making, Tāniko was used only for borders since the weave is too stiff to suit entire garments.  Tāniko is also used to make Pari (bodices), tipare (head bands), Tapeka (sashes), Tātua (belts) and taonga whakapaipai (jewellery).  Tāniko designs express histories, ideas and values important in Te Ao Maori (The Maori World).
