The Essence of Te Reo Maori:

Te Reo Maori is more than just a language; it's a treasure trove of stories, traditions, and a profound connection to the land. With its melodious sounds and expressive words, it's a language that resonates with the heart and soul of New Zealand. Maori Language Week is a time to honour and preserve this unique linguistic heritage.


Embrace Te Reo Maori in Your Home:

  1. Maori-Inspired Decor: Add a touch of Te Reo Maori to your home with our exclusive range of Maori-themed bedding and homewares. From gorgeous Maori Hook Blankets to special Tea Towels and Socks, adorned with Maori phrases and heritage patterns, you can infuse the essence of this remarkable language into your living spaces.
  2. Learn: Join us in celebrating Maori Language Week by learning a few simple Maori phrases.
    Bed - "Moenga" or "Wharau Moenga" (literally "sleeping place" or "bed place")
    Pillow - "Whakoreore" or "Whakawae" (different words for "pillow")
