Contemporary Maori Textiles in New Zealand

Whaia e koe te iti kahurangi.         Seek your inner most dreams
The development of fabric printing is one of the many reflections of the ongoing renaissance in Maori art. The artists featured here have drawn on their tribal backgrounds, especially the traditional forms. The design strengths of taaniko, tukutuku, kowhaiwhai, raranga and moko have provided inspiration for their work in a variety of materials.
