Nuku - Earth
Papatūānuku is, in Te Ao Māori, the earth mother. All things are born from her and nurtured by her. Here at Nuku, I believe we have an opportunity to care for our earth mother by making eco friendly choices in the clothes we wear. My kaupapa is simple - to work only with natural sustainable resources, permanently infusing colours and prints from local botanicals into each one-of-a-kind piece. This is slow clothing, a movement that nurtures a circular economy with zero waste. It's why a number of garments in the collection are preloved, redeemed through eco printing as wearable art. When you purchase my work I promise you'll own something to treasure for a long long time, knowing you tread gently on this beautiful earth.
