Handmade Harakeke WETA

Handmade Harakeke WETA
Everyone has a WETA story. Lots of people’s first reaction is to stomp on them if taken by surprise and we shudder every time we hear this. They are an iconic creature from New Zealand - our largest insect - an ancient toanga.

This weta is about the size of the giant weta, still found in some parts of New Zealand.

On these ones, the feelers are adjustable and the back legs move, to give the impression that they are about to jump. They are so realistic that buyers are often initially reluctant to handle them.

They have a strong wire frame which is skillfully wrapped in stripped flax.

They are very light for posting. They are not at all fragile. They will last for years and years. They come with a guarantee. They are made from a sustainable resource (NZ harakeke - flax) They are a truly unique kiwi-made gift.

One size only - 130mm plus legs and feelers
