Kia ora, Ko Taongahuia ahau
Welcome to my website (and our Rotorua Store) where we get to share space, celebrate and support INDIGENOUS TALENTS’ INGENUITY - the amazing creative skills of locals, whānau and friends together in one space where you can browse and enjoy the artwork, or purchase something to take home or gift. Meet some of my ITI Tribe who help to make ITI happen:.
Ngati Maniapoto, Ngai Tai
Shes my daighter and my go to person as well as our instore weaver. She is fortunate to have the support of top Weavers both here in TeArawa and also across the motu.
Watch this space as she will also be doing weaving workshops instore.
Nettie works in the shop and is also the maker of our Botanical and Uku Hauora products. She’s a bit Camera shy but Loves horsing around so this was the best shot we could find.
Another one who is Camera shy. We call Lisa our boss because we are all creative and when we tend to get inspired by our surroundimgs, Lisa keeps us on track. Shes a hard worker and ...well ... shes just “Boss”. She also knows nearly everyone who comes in the shop,
Both Lisa and Nettie are invaluable to the success of the shop.
