Product Detail

Intricate, elegant, and innovative, this gorgeous kete (basket) backpack from Wairoa Weave is authentically Aotearoa through and through. Handmade in the Bay of Islands from local flax, this beautifully patterned kete is created by weaving natural and dyed black flax strands together to create an exquisite taonga and a fabulous accessory all in one. Raranga is a traditional and highly specialised Māori art form of weaving strands of dried harakeke (flax) into items such as kete, mats, and cloaks entirely by hand.
