WELCOME TO MAORI DESIGN WORKS!
Our designs usually begin with Māori kōwhaiwhai patterns hand-painted on to wooden boards. These designs are then adapted and printed or screen printed onto paper, wood or fabric to create a range of practical products for school, office and home.
Traditionally, Māori kōwhaiwhai paintings were based on elements of nature and these repeated motifs were commonly found on rafters and wharenui - meeting houses.
WE CREATE FUNCTIONAL, DECORATIVE AND EDUCATIONAL PRODUCTS ON PAPER, FABRIC & WOOD.
