Harete print 
Being a decorative designer I wanted to create a print inspired by the birth of my daughter Harete Mical Mitai-Ngatai born 07/03/2019. I took inspiration from the Poi Taniko (Poi- a ball on the end of string used in kapahaka performance and Taniko- the Maori art discipline of twining). Layering the style of Poi Taniko on fabric as a literal illustration for her to hold on to her culture and what makes her unique ‘Kia ū ki to ahurea Māori e hine’
