Our design intention is to inspire a sense of relentless ambition, of perseverance and courage. This stylised kaitaka design acknowledges seeking higher education & self-development as a chiefly trait, to progress pathways of prosperity for the betterment of the collective. The body of the blanket is inspired by the traditional muka (flax fibre) weaving, with each bold coloured horizontal weft reflecting ‘ngā ārai’, the barriers or challenges that present themselves in our pursuits. Often these challenges are internal…
This design draws upon the inherent attributes embodied by our forebears at Pukehinahina (Gate Pā) and continually throughout our heritage. It serves as a reminder that we too are of a noble fighting spirit, resolute and purposeful, calculated and adaptable, determined and stout hearted, with the courage and nous to rise up and meet any challenge as we strive for victory.

This blanket is woven with 100% New Zealand Lambswool, milled and raised to achieve a lush feel. Using five different weave structures to embellish the design, it also features  blanket stitch edging and has a reversible contrasting colour pallet. The yarn colours used are Orchid, flaxen, Bronze and Red Ochre.

Wool blankets are among the most durable and desirable of all blankets. They're soft and warm, and are very difficult to stain or damage. Wool blankets are also very easy to care for and you don’t need to wash them often, in fact, it’s best to wash them sparingly and some guidelines recommend washing wool blankets once every three months.

Check out our product care page for further information on how to care for your blanket.
