These tohu are made from salvaged Rimu or Tōtara, native New Zealand timbers, and are created to order with a custom name of your choice.
These taonga are a lovely addition to the bedroom or door, as a commemoration or gift. Their timeless design and quality workmanship will endure for many years to come.
There are two sizes you can select from.
Small: 30cm x 15cm x 2cm, this length is suitable for names 7 characters or fewer.
Large: 38cm x 15cm x 2cm, This length is suitable for names 8-14 characters long.
* characters include spaces, so if your name has a space in it, that space will count as one character.
Each piece is sealed with a natural oil to protect and enhance the wood grain.
As we are working with salvaged materials, each piece is different and will have a unique appearance.
Once you have placed your order, please reply to the order confirmation email with the name you would like carved.
Please allow 2 weeks for these taonga to be created and sent to you.
We can deliver to NZ or Australia.
These one-of-a-kind taonga are created in Taranaki and were dreamt up during the Rāhui as a part of a whānau collaboration with our bro Tapatoru Design.
They are the first in a series of explorations in NZ-made from repurposed, salvaged or up-cycled materials.
I absolutely love it and I am looking forward to seeing it opened and put up at Christmas.
I ordered this beautiful carving for my son who was born 14weeks early so it can sit near him during his journey in hospital
I bought these for my sons and friends baby first birthday as I wanted something unique to them and their Māori heritage. Aho Creative provided just that, absolutely beautiful and already wrapped up ready to gift! So special, thanks team!
We have ordered several of these now for new baby gifts for whānau and they are always well received, such a beautiful way to welcome a new pepi into the world.
