THE ROIMATA DESIGN:

The Roimata, known to Maori as the comforting stone has been used to represent healing and strength through life. Such Taonga are gifted to those in mourning and are said to encourage positive energy, confidence and a connection to the land. Maori have used the stone in rituals and as statements of rank and power. It protects us when traveling abroad, and is noted for having healing powers. 

OUR STONES:

Our stones are sourced from 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 method of sanding by hand with a sandstone stick. We follow the Maori Whakairo (carving) protocols closely and we strive to craft Taonga (treasures) that honour the traditions of the Tangata Whenua (People of the land) of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and that make a homage to our own Tangata Whenua of Colombia who were also fine artisans and craftsmen.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Our Taonga & jewellery is made of high-quality metals and stones, that are made to be worn daily however they can still be damaged through contact with harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and collisions. Keep your Taonga/jewellery away from chlorinated water as it can erode the metal, Avoid any hard knocks and scratches to your stones. If your stones look dry, rub it against your skin or rub a small amount of natural oil such as olive or coconut on to it.
