Viewing the night sky has been habitual for artist Cheri Waititi since she was a small child.
Birds have played a huge role within her world with respect to her whānau kaitiaki and in was the inspiration for the design called Ngā Manu o Te Rangi – The Birds of the Heavens, the gifting of birds from the heavens to the earth.
Printed on a luxurious silk twill fabric allows the movement of the designs to cascade over the fabric similar to the way it travels through the night sky with its array of deep colours and iridescent flecks of light.
Distinctly from Aotearoa, these designs speak of the past, the present and the future. They give the wearer a soft power, a sense of belonging and pride for any outfit and occasion. More than just a scarf. A Style that can only come from our place, Aotearoa.
