NEW ARRIVAL

This is a beauty! A really striking matau design - we've made this to catch the eye, and bound it with a black cord and our Paradise Blue binding. A pendant from the ocean and about the ocean. We've deliberately bound this in contrasting colours - the black necklace signifying the land and the bright. Paradise Blue binding to represent the ocean that surrounds our country.

This is a great piece if you are looking for something chunky and bold, but with a little intrigue. 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.
