Customising any Korowai by Hiria design allows you to change the feather colours and styles in consultation with Hiria Aorangi. Depending on your design requests, this may take a few days or weeks to agree upon mutually. A sample photo of your actual design is taken, and we ask that you sign off on this design before any production begins. Please note that no additional changes can be made after approving the plan.

Can you help me to incorporate different aspects into my Korowai design?

Yes, we can. However, your iwi affiliations, colours and whakapapa (genealogy) are personal to you, and we recommend having these kinds of conversations with your whānau (family) before having discussions with us. We are here to help; however, as we hail from Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hine, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Kuri & Ngāti Whatua ki Kaipara, we cannot give accurate advice for the Tikanga (cultural practices) and korero (stories) from your Iwi (tribe) or Hapu (village).

Can you customise the Taniko band for me?

Unfortunately, No. Due to us not having the resources at this time. Our current Taniko design is the Patiki (flounder), as shown in our website photographs. We are looking to offer this service in the future.

We are here to help, learn and grow with you, and these FAQs will be updated regularly. If you have any further questions, please email us at info@hiriaaorangi.com
