New to our product range and made for both Tāne (male) and Wāhine (female) is our limited run of hoodies. 

Tupuārangi

This collection is based on the star 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).

For this collection we drew inspiration from the manu, the kererū, the kākā and the kāhu. We have also used the overall theme of Tupuārangi as a hunter of birds.  

Kākā pōria

The tohu (pattern) printed on the back 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.
