EST. 2019 - MISS MAIA
FUTURIST DESIGNS AWAKENED BY ANCESTRY
We create jewellery, accessories and merch that seeks to re-indigenise, remember and reclaim. Our unique and culturally saturated fashion accessories are vessels for others to express their own creativity, personality, values, culture and whakapapa (identity). Our bright and bold futurist designs weave traditional Māori symbolism with contemporary materials and process, where each design has its own story to tell. Take a look at our range to see for yourself and to learn more.
YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR EXPRESSION
Our pieces celebrate, amplify or complement your expression and connection to culture.
KIKORUA explores the theme of double/twofold/double vision/descent through more than one line of ancestry.
