Tiny Toki – Iti Rawa te tahi

The Toki was one of the most important tool for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such as cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging the ground, Moa hunting and food preparations.

Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. Pounamu toki were also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

These tiny toki are just the cutest little toki ever.  Slim and lightweight, this is the perfect taonga gift for any age. It will tuck down into your t-shirt when you are doing something physical but can also stand out with strength and dignity when required.

And when you hold them up to the light they glow!  Have a look through the photos and you’ll see what I mean.

My kids all wear small pieces like this and I often borrow them when I need something delicate and striking for a night out.

Iti rawa – esepcially small. This would be a great gift for any age, from a newborn baby to your grandad.
