Our stones are sourced from Ngai Tahu Poutini with a certificate of Authenticity and the Arahura River on the West Coast of the South Island. All of our pieces are carved by hand and finished off using the traditional sanding method by hand with a sandstone stick. We follow the Maori Whakairo protocols closely. We strive to craft Taonga that honours the traditions of the Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa and make a homage to our indigenous people of the land in Colombia, who were also fine artisans and craftsmen.
