Aroha Mutunga Kore 'Pukepoto' Gathered Ring Sling
Pukepoto is so gorgeous as a ring sling. Ours holds so many memories of when our babies were babies! At approx 250gsm in loom state it is a thin to medium weight, densely woven in 100% fine cotton yarn. Soft and blankety to touch, it has glide and mouldability yet also plenty of grip from the richly textured design.
This ring sling has a gathered style shoulder and black rings.
More on the design: 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 vibrant pacific sea blue woven on an ecru warp, we have named this one Pukepoto. In reference to the historically revered and sought after blue mineral clay that was used to beautify the wearer and was celebrated for it’s rarity.
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 able to ship ring slings to New Zealand and Australia only.
Your ring sling will arrive in loom state and requires washing before use to set the weave. We feel it's better to leave the choice of washing detergent up to you in case of any sensitivities. Additional images of the wrap version are to show the design and colour when in use.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
