KAPITI - named after an island off the west coast of our North Island - a sanctuary to wildlife...

This is a beauty! Carved in whalebone, a really clean matau design - we've added a 4-plait wapiti brown cord and our wapiti brown binding to give it a little eye-grabbing appeal. 

This is a great piece if you are looking for something strong and bold but also elegant. Check out the short video we've made of the piece rotating - it will give you a perfect idea of exactly how this piece looks.

The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.

Whale bone is quite porous and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time. Local belief would say that this creates a connection between the owner and the pendant and that it becomes a part of you.

We deliver this pendant on a hand plaited, adjustable cord and will include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
