Taongahuia's textile and lifestyle products are inspired from her love of her whānau, Matauranga Māori,
Toi Māori, natural surroundings and upbringing.
She prefers custom design prints, textile manipulation, hand dyed or hand print textiles and sustainable textiles which she fuses with Māori concepts and tailored excellence to bring pieces created out of self-expression, rather than fashion trends and fashion seasons. From subtle raranga or Niho infused tartan, to bold Poutama and Kowhaiwhai, Taongahuia uses Textiles as a canvas to explore various creative techniques, providing"Kakahu with Kaupapa"
KAHU HUIA is in the early stages of development and have released our first collection of staple Hikurere and Tees. We will have more by the end of the year.
