Kia ora Kawe – handcrafted biological illustrations for sale!

Three weeks ago, we were very lucky to be gifted a beautiful and nature-based double gauze cotton cloth from Kawe (@kawe.nz) founder and our wonderful and super talented friend, Dianne Northcott.

Northcott designs and hand screen prints Taonga tūturu no Aotearoa – native animals of New Zealand that are particularly hard to see live. The male seahorse on our gifted gauze, like all the other animals Northcott uses, are hand drawn, with some illustrations coming from the 1940s.

Come and buy Kawe’s incredible linen and cotton tablecloths, napkins, gloves and more this coming Saturday 11th December at the Mt Eden Village Craft Market, 449 Mt Eden Rd from 10am-4pm and on Sunday 12th December at the Pah Homestead Makers Market, 72 Hillsborough Road from 10.30am-3pm. Bring cash as there will be limited eftpos at both markets.

If you want to pre-order, email Dianne here: kiaorakawe@gmail.com.

Wear your mask and happy shopping!
