Tupuārangi

This garment comes from our Tupuārangi collection. Tupuārangi (male), one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation. Tupuārangi is similar to Tupuānuku (the star of all cultivated and uncultivated food products) in terms of its connection to food and growth; however, in this instance he is associated with food that comes from the sky.  Tupuārangi is linked to nga manu (birds).

 

Design:

The main tohu (pattern) for Tupuārangi is the kākā pōria, which are small leg rings usually fashioned from bone or stone such as pounamu. This was so that the birds could become mōkai (pet) which were then used to help hunt more Kākā birds.

The patterns within the kākā pōria link to matariki by using elements of nine.

 

Style:

You can wear this cape several ways, off the shoulder, with the neck rolled up and as a hooded cape.

This cape is cut slightly different to our normal 'Long' cape, its edges are straight, it has pockets and it is much longer in length (approx 140cm).
