The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community. It is worn for protection when travelling - especially over water.
We provide these on hand plaited adjustable cords and will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Hook design.
