Māori cloaks are most commonly worn on special occasions, whether a significant hui and coming together of people, or significant graduation, birthday or tangi. The cloaks hold stories of our history or whānau [family] and whakapapa [genealogy]. They’re held in the highest regard and worn with the highest form of respect, prestige, and honor.
The taniko trim has been woven from wool in NZ. This design is the Universal Patiki or flounder design. The diamond shape represents the flounder fish. A good luck charm for the provision of food for the Iwi. In this more modern age, it represents employment and providing for the family.
