This design was inspired by patterns that traditionally adorn the rafters of wharenui (Māori meeting houses). Our kōwhaiwhai pattern combines the koru and koiri in a design that represents the fluidity of life through growth, change, reflection and expansion.

Traditionally, the manawa (connecting line, heart, vein) of the kōwhaiwhai is always white, signifying purity. We have also added a black kōwhaiwhai pattern - to honour the parts of ourselves, our histories and our futures that are not so pure. In embracing both the shadow and the light within us and our experiences, we can accept the balance we need to flourish.

To make recreating our demo design super easy, we've popped all the extras you’ll need into a matching Set of Sparkles.

The Kōwhaiwhai Set of Sparkles includes:

  • 2 x SS16 Swarovski Silk
  • 4 x SS12 Swarovski Silk
  • 4 x SS5 Swarovski Silk
  • 6 x SS7 Swarovski Rose Gold
  • 2 x SS16 Swarovski Jet
  • 4 x SS7 Swarovski Jet Hematite 
  • 4 x Acrylic pāua coloured gems
  • Rose gold caviar beads 

Each set includes 2 sheets of 12 Nail Transfer Tattoos (37mm long) in your choice of black, white or both (24 in total). 

Made with love in Aotearoa.
