What other woven treasures?

Well - there are so many things one can do (or has done) with Harakeke and the other weave-able fibres or modern materials (using traditional methods) . The photos are only some of our own creations - from woven hats to place mats and other small containers and gift idea's.

Something special are the Kete Kai - traditional food baskets. The large gaps are purpose made to allow dirt and water to escape and air to get through any gathered food (such as shellfish, kumara etc). We can make these to order or just pick any from the Order page if we have them in stock. 

Please give us a call if you are after something specific which is not mentioned here and we will try and find a solution for you.


PLEASE NOTE!!!! Colour: Most of the photos with colourd pikau and kete are a few years old. We used to be able to dye the flax with a American made textile dye that looked really good and lasted a long time but they changed their ingredietns and now it does not take on Flax anymore. We are now using a New Zealand made Flax Dye that has very bright and "out there" colours but they tend to fade rather quickly - especially in sunlight - so for items that are going to be used outside or hung in a sunny spot in your house please be aware that they may not hold the original colour for very long (in some cases not even 6 months...). In addition the most asked for colors black and red are not really stable  - they are more greenish blue or pink... we can't guarntee a specific shade of colour as a result and prefer all natural items ... As a result we do not guarantee that the colour in your chosen items will stay the way it looks when you purchased it - this is a official disclaimer to that regard..
