Black Korowai Cape.
Size: 1050W x 220H mm excluding the cords.
These modern Korowai capes are an exciting way to be able to wear a Korowai. They are extremely popular for weddings and evening wear.
Our Korowai are handmade in Auckland by machine stitching feathers onto a lined fabric base. The feather wrap around the front edge to complete the look. A traditional handwoven one takes many weeks to complete and costs significantly more. A modern Korowai offers better durability and more colours. Inspiration for the colour and designs from our local fauna and flora. We use beautiful farmed chicken and rooster feathers, some of which have been dyed to create the amazing colour range available in our Korowai selection. Our Korowai have drawstring ties so you can alter the width to fit the wearer. We try to keep a small stock but you should allow a week for production.
The taniko trim has also been woven from wool in NZ. This design is the Marena design or wedding design. The triangles represent people. In the centre of the "V" are the bride and groom with the minister in front of them. The outer parts of the "V" show the whanau witnessing the ceremony. The gold thread shows the importance of this day.
