Whakataukī Card Set

These are beautifully made and meaningful. Really special and I wish I had gotten a few more for gifting.

Ahakoa he iti he pounamu..

In my 3rd year of studying te reo and these whakataukī sit next to my desk....a sweet reminder of my haerenga past and ahead. Love these so much!

Charlotte Hansen

I love this whakataukī set; they came out right at the time I was needing the positive affirmations. Each message really resonates with me and I am excited to instill these sayings in my children as they grow also. They currently reside on my desk at work and I change them out each week. I should have bought a second set for home!! From the packaging through to the cards themselves, you can tell these were made and sent with aroha. I just love them!

Whakataukī Cards

These are just beautiful. Love everything about them. I admit that I did round the corners on them though. 🤭The presentation and packaging is always so thoughtfully considered. Fantastic value for money for a truly beautiful product.
