Made in New Zealand, these stunning Maori style gift boxes, or ‘wakahuia’, are perfect for storing a small amount of your jewellery when you are travelling.
Wakahuia are sacred vessels used by Maori to carry and protect objects of great importance – taonga – when in transit, such as on a canoe. So you if you are giving one of our hand carved jewellery items to someone special, you could put them inside a wakahuia and make your gift extra special!
Made of solid wood, this attractive slider box has a decorative design on top featuring an inlaid paua shell carved in the shape of a koru, or fern frond. The koru represents new beginnings, new life and family love.
4″ X 3 ” (101 mm x 77 mm).
