Stunning, hand made in Aotearoa and one of a kind. These earrings will enhance any outfit like nothing else.
Design pattern Tāniko. The pattern used on these earrings are our take on the tāniko pattern, which expresses histories, ideas and values important in Te Ao Māori (The Maori World). This specific tāniko pattern is our interpretation of Papatūānuku (Mother Earth) and our whenua (land). It is a section of a larger piece of tāniko work.
Background to Tāniko: 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).
