Kia ora, Ko Taongahuia ahau
Welcome to my website (and our Rotorua Store) where we get to share space, celebrate and support INDIGENOUS TALENTED INDIVIDUALS - 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

Nettie works in the shop and is also the maker of our Botanical and Uku Hauora products. She's been making rongoa for a long time starting out just making it for her nannies, aunties and Emery Store before expanding to the local community quickly building up a yaluable customer base
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,
Paulette is a talented maker as well. She shares the sewing studio with Taongahuia, and works one day in the shop. Paulette & Taongahuia support each other on their goals and business aspirations and are currently studying ecommerce together.
