The Pātiki Whenua Brown Design is inspired by the Māori tradition of Papatuanuku, the Earth Mother, and the land. Our design incorporates natural elements like trees, birds, and human life, represented by a mix of black, greens, natural browns, and a striped beige coque feather. Finished with a 2in tan patiki taniko band and a touch of white, our kākahu are expertly crafted with a focus on both aesthetic beauty and heirloom-level quality. Featured in prestigious publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Tatler, and Glamour Magazine, our designs are created by female Māori designers and produced by a family-operated business in New Zealand, following traditional cultural customs and guidance from elders.

Our designs are made to fit most of the whānau. Please allow 10 business days for your order to be completed. We offer 3 lengths and have a standardised width to fit up to 120cm shoulder width. Please email cs@korowaibyhiria.com if you'd like to double check for the broader whānau members

Care Instructions

These Korowai are categorised as FRAGILE GARMENTS and need special care and attention to see it last as a multi-generational heirloom.

 

Spot clean only - do not machine wash or handwash. Do not twist or wring. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Never iron. Due to the fragile nature of the feathers, you will risk damaging your Korowai if you do not follow these strict care instructions.

If you must spot clean your Korowai, do not hang it in direct or strong sunlight as this can damage and cause your feather colours to fade over time. Let it dry out in the shade.
