Taura Here Manawa
"The cord that binds me to your heart..."
A true beauty in our design series with Hirini Katene of Natives Studio. This design came from our earliest conversations and was more collaborative than the others in our 'Manawa' series, which were conceived of later but released sooner. Here again, you can see the central motif of manawa (heart) running in repeat like a heartbeat through the design. Carried along on a line that represents not only the heart but the umbilical cord, bringing life, energy, and connection.
Te Āo Pounamu is 100% easy care cotton and is one of our thicker weaves, so is best suited for heftier infants, wriggly toddlers, and tired pre-schoolers - it needs some softening through wash and wear before being used to carry a newborn. It is supple and supportive with just the right amount of stretch for a bandagey fit and a rock solid carry.
You can choose for your wrap to be made (hemmed) to show the black base side with the design in green, or the green side with the design showing in black. It 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 ❤
