Koakoa Design

Earrings - Haki


The Haki design is inspired by the flags flying on pou in front of whare.
Signalling intent and speaking of history and pride.
They fly, buffeted by the wind.  Hoisted with pride, with joy, with determination, in grief and in sadness.  
They communicate history and future, signal intent.
They tell you about the people who gather below.
We're here.

Road trips with kaihana to walk on whenua, kaput? and visits with whanaunga on their farms - these are the moments that lead us to the feathers that adorn these and our other befeathered earrings.
