Design description: Hiwa i te rangi print

This collection is based on Hiwa-i-te-rangi, one of the nine stars of Matariki.

She’s the star that we send our hopes and aspirations to for the forthcoming year so we thought that it's really timely. We’ve come out of this lockdown period and a lot of change has happened and now it’s a time to wish and send out our hopes and dreams for the new year (māori new year).


The kōrero behind the patterns used within this collection is strongly based around the tukutuku pattern, Purapura whetū (star seeds, or sometimes stardust). This formation of the cross-stitch has been used to represent either Hiwa-i-te-rangi on her own or as the entire matariki constellation and its nine stars. 

The image of the wāhine (woman) is our interpretation of Hiwa, drawn within a taimana (diamond) which again is in reference to a star.  The tukutuku patterns on the border of this frame are in lots of nine (matariki reference), we have included the actual constellation in her night hair and her moko kauae (chin) shows the connection between the stars and us here on the whenua (land).
