Taniko is a decorative technique used on the borders of kakaru - traditional Maori woven cloaks. The design you see here is inspired by taniko bands and the borders on traditional Cook Island mats that were the start of my weaving journey. The fibres also echo the feathers found on prestigious kahu huruhuru feathered cloaks.

These needlework art pieces, designed by Wrapt in New Zealand, are completed in traditional red and black and feature a feather like yarn that stands out from the stitching giving the piece a 3D effect. They are a fantastic souvenir or memento of New Zealand and the unique cultures of the South Pacific.


The Coromandel Peninsula separates the Hauraki Gulf and the Firth of Thames from the Pacific Ocean. It is renowned for its natural beauty, green pastures, misty rainforests and pristine golden beaches.

The name Coromandel is taken from the name of a naval vessel. It is also known as Te Tara-o-te-Ika a Māui (the jagged barb of Māui's fish). The islands of the Hauraki Gulf and the Coromandel Peninsula were likely places of first landfall for Polynesian migrants around 1250–1300, and Mercury Bay was a landing place for James Cook in 1769.
