Harakeke flax Godwit

Listing image #561267
Listing image #561360
After eighteen years of making creatures from harakeke (NZ Flax), this beautiful bird is still the most popular one from the larger range. She has a sturdy wire skeleton which is wrapped in flax and she is finely balanced as if she is about to fly away. She will last for many years and will improve with age and handling.

She stands 230mm high and 360mm from end of tail to end of beak, although each one is made individually and may have slightly different dimensions.

About all of our creatures: 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.

Recent feedback from a customer:
"The other day the most elegant, moving godwit arrived - beautiful colours and design. This is the bird that uses the winds to travel gently across landscapes - a metaphor for our time captured beautifully in this piece of art. Thank you so much!"
