A series of beautiful pou depicting the different types of decorative elements found on kākahu (cloak) of old.
Each pou is woven in muka, harakeke (NZ Flax) fibre processed by hand to create beautiful silky threads for weaving. The black colour has been obtained by boiling in waiwai (mordant) and then immersed in paru (mud). The pou stand on a base of Kahikatea, a beautiful strong native tree.
This pou has pokinikini which are made in the same way as piupiu by exposing some of the fibre
