Aroha Mutunga Kore 'Mamaku' - ring sling conversion
Due to our converter's insurance, we are only able to ship ring slings to New Zealand and Australia.
A parent's love is immense. Endless. Infinite. Our little ones are always in our hearts and on our minds. They are the heartbeat of our universe. We have named our first wrap in tribute to this everlasting love.
Created in collaboration with Hirini 'Heeds' Katene of House of Natives, Aroha Mutunga Kore is based on an original kowhaiwhai design that speaks of the bond of love between parent and child.
In a zig zag along the length is the manawa line, this is the heartbeat.From here come two mangopare. One is to represent strength and guidance from Mum and Dad. The other is made up of three puhoro to represent the bond between mother and child and their journey in life.
We are excited to bring you the first release of Aroha Mutunga Kore in a deep warm black, woven on an ecru warp, that we have named Mamaku after our beloved native fern.
Our Mamaku Ring Slings have been converted locally by the babywearing community's beloved K.I.Designs. They come from half of a size 5 wrap and all have black Sling Ring rings, with your choice of a gathered or hybrid shoulder. Post wash, from the seam below the rings, they measure approx 1.8m to short taper, and 2.1m to long taper. At approx 250gsm loomstate, they are a thin to medium weight, densely woven in 100% fine cotton yarn.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
