This apron is for the one willing to get their hands dirty. The first to grab a tea towel at the marae. The one who works their nono off behind the scenes to achieve their goals. The one doing the mahi, and deserves the treats. A companion for the makers, doers, and go-getters.
These aprons are not limited to the kīhini (kitchen), but are stylish and durable covers to protect your kākahu (clothes) for a variety of kaupapa (scenarios) such as raranga (weaving), mahi māra (gardening/floristry), mahi toi (art/crafts), whakairo (carving), matapaia (pottery), and more.
“Mauri mahi, mauri ora”
Do the mahi (work), get the treats (through work, we prosper)
This Māori proverb stresses the importance of nurturing and modelling a lifestyle that embraces hard work, which in turn will be rewarded with a prosperous future.
