We are excited to announce the design and weaving of our very own

Check out our WAITAKI COLLECTION pages to see how we designed and are weaving our tartan, and how you can be part of the story.

weaving the waitaki tartan

Weaving the Waitaki tartan is a passion project for us.

We had thought about doing this for years, but it was always in the too hard basket. One November day in 2022 it suddenly became important that we did it, before we couldn't. We are delighted that you are following our progress. We trust you will love this project as much as we do, and support us in telling
some of the stories of the Waitaki.

the three goals for our Waitaki tartan collection

To design and weave a tartan fabric that tells some of the stories of the Waitaki; the land, river, and people – with authenticity and respect.

To produce a commercially viable artisan fabric with a limited carbon footprint, as locally, sustainably and ethically as possible

To create a sustainable, marketable, registered tartan design, as a legacy
for future Waitaki culture and heritage fundraising events.
