We are super excited to announce our new merch line!
Presenting: Hauora - designed by Talisker Scott Hunter!
Purchase details below!
From the designer:
This design is based on the concept of 'Te Whare Tapa Whā' - the four cornerstones of Maori health. For this illustration, I sought to represent these four aspects of wellbeing by depicting two braided rivers and two tree trunks, converging into a central lake, from which a torrent of foam and mist emerges. In terms of style, I was eager to evoke the illustrative style of traditional Maori/ Pasifika art, as well as the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. Personally, these two styles represent the convergence of a European/Pacific appreciation for our earth's natural beauty, complexity and diversity. As individuals and New Zealanders, these concepts are found within both our land and ourselves. Through this design, I sought to highlight the importance of acknowledging beauty, complexity, and diversity; particularly in our approach to mental health.
Our Hauora merch is available to be printed on Black or Grey Marle Stencil Hoods, Staple tees or Mali tees. Hoodies are $60 and Tees are $30; we are able to courier these anywhere in Aotearoa for an additional fee!
