'Matariki' by Veranoa Hetet. A reversible cloak made entirely of flax (unprocessed, piupiu and fibre). The top woven panel has the Matariki pattern on one side and Waahi rua on the reverse. Both patterns represent those who have passed on. When wearing this cloak one is embraced by them. The piupiu at the bottom gives weight to the cloak and represents the gifts handed down by our ancestors - anchoring Māori in tradition.
