Aroha Mutunga Kore 'Pukepoto' woven wrap
This classic beauty of a woven baby wrap is made for all levels of wrapping experience, suited to carrying little ones at all stages. 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.
Created in collaboration with Hirini 'Heeds' Katene, of The Native Studios, 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.
Your wrap 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.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
