Taniko remains an art form deeply revered by the Maori community and is passed down through generations. By continuing to incorporate Taniko patterns into the creation of Korowai and other cultural artifacts, the Maori ensure that their ancestral stories and artistic brilliance endure, allowing future generations to connect with their roots. While Taniko has deep historical roots, it has also found a place in contemporary fashion and art. Modern designers and artisans draw inspiration from Taniko patterns, incorporating them into clothing, accessories, and home decor. This cultural fusion not only celebrates Maori traditions but also allows the world to appreciate the timeless beauty and significance of Taniko.
Meaning of the banding: This band is a variant of the Pātikitiki pattern with the triangles referring to people. The colours have been selected for their significance to all Māori. The design shows you with your family, ancestors and the spiritual realm.
