We're hooked on these little bone hooks! These are hand carved from natural bone and are hand bound by us with a tan coloured braided cord. The necklace is adjustable so you can position the pendant where it suits you best.

Legend has it that New Zealand was once a huge fish that was caught by the great mariner Maui using a line of woven plant fibre and a bone hook - so the hook, or matau, is central to our Islands.

The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.

We provide this beautiful hook on a hand plaited brown adjustable cord and will also include on of our 'Kia Ora' cards which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
