Every pēpi is a precious taonga that we love and cherish. We created this bilingual Māori baby book to capture pēpi’s life milestones in their first year.

The incredible thing about our book is that we’ve included some uniquely Māori sections such as whakapapa - lineage, whenua ki te whenua - returning your placenta to the earth, my first Matariki and Waitangi, visit to the marae, moana and more. We have two styles available. 

Puhoro - White and gold book with puhoro designs inside. This design represents the ocean, rivers and waterways. The flow of life and interconnectedness and balance of the natural environment.

Poutama - Black and silver book with poutama designs inside. This design symbolises levels of attainment and advancement and the growth of a person, striving to elevate in their life.
