Welcome to Nōku Pakihi
We are a small Māori owned and operated business based in Ngati Kahungunu, Hawkes Bay. We are three māmā who are passionate about keeping our culture alive and through kākahu we are able to express this.
What Our Customers are Saying
I love the simplicity of the design it doesn’t over complicate the tīhate, yet the significance is mana enhancing. My sister reps Nōku kākahu and they look awesome on her
I absolutely love the quality of the kākahu and the designs. When I wear your pieces, it definitely feels like “you are what you wear” in terms of “Nōku” I love your name & the message behind it & am super proud to wear your kākahu and name!
I love the uniqueness of the designs, the colors are some of my favorites, super comfortable and the sizing is just perfect!!
"NŌKU TE PIKINGA"
We developed a whakataukī (proverb) to enhance the meaning of what our kaupapa is about.
"Nōku te pikinga"
"The journey is mine"
This can be applied to any context in life. We all go through ups and downs and learn as we go. This is the essence of Nōku.
