Kia ora & welcome to Aramoana Gifts.
Kia ora, my name is Tracey Aramoana & Aramoana Gifts is
our whānau business based in Paerata, South Auckland.
We specialise in creating high quality contemporary Kākahu (sewn feather cloaks) & creative feather art. We also stock a range of unique jewellery, earrings & taonga.
Nani’s lifelong learning journey began with harakeke and then extended to raranga, mop and muka. She attended marae, lessons, courses, training, noho and waananga to improve and hone her skills. As a career sample machinist (with over 40-50 years experience) - she used her technical knowledge to fuse contemporary materials.
She supported her whaanau by working as a sample machinist for some of New Zealand’s top fashion icons. Since 2018, she has focused on mahi with whaanau to create art with Aramoana Gifts.
Our goal is for Aramoana Gifts to be a recognised and sought after brand renowned throughout New Zealand for high quality contemporary kākahu (feather cloaks) & jewellery.
We live by our values of whānau, excellence, accessibility, creativity and aroha, and encompass this in our work.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting our journey so far.
Tracey & whānau
