Kia ora, Ko Taongahuia ahau

Welcome to my website (and our Rotorua Store) where we get to share space, celebrate and support  INDIGENOUS TALENTED INDIVIDUALS  -  the amazing creative skills of locals, whānau and friends together in one space where you can browse and enjoy the artwork, or purchase something to take home or gift.   Meet some of my ITI Tribe who help to make ITI happen:.
