Nga mihi Tim and Morganne.

Profile Description

Guided by moemoea (dreams), which are powerful messages to self; and driven to do what is right over what is profitable, Taonga by Timoti has a simple approach and clear perspective:
“People before profit. Papatuanuku before profit. Integrity before profit.”

Driving this is a core focus and connection to wairua. The wairua (essence) to create, share and gift.

Create: At Taonga by Timoti each taonga is hand carved, sourced and designed using the stones own qualities to create a unique taonga, specific to the wearer.

Share: To share is to empower others. At Taonga by Timoti this applies to our hosted experience groups as well as the work Timoti does with local rangatahi.

Gift: Tū Maia is a connected gifting system, for every taonga by Timoti purchased, a pendant is carved and gifted to a tamariki in care, in Aotearoa.
