Re-usable cup - perfect for coffee and tea on the go!
Matariki is being celebrated this year with New Zealand’s first public holiday to mark this truly special event on Friday, 24 June 2022.
We are proud to have the perfect Cuppacoffeecup to celebrate this amazing time. It is our Aroha design by New Zealand artist Christine Harvey. Christine explains to us (below) the importance of Matariki and her Aroha atu, Aroha mai design.
“We celebrate Matariki “Aroha atu, Aroha mai” together remembering our loved ones and whānau maintaining our connections within our communities. These taniko designs are inspired by Matariki, it is a repetition of a whetu symbol as a representation of our loved ones ‘i whetūrangitia’ who have taken their place in the heavens and shine on us as stars above in the quiet of night. We can look to them as reminders of the aroha we feel for them and they have given us. These whetu are clustered, as are we, this whakataukī is a reminder of reciprocity to be kind to each other in our day to day movements. Give love n kindness and receive love and kindness.”
