Many different iwi and groups have adopted the poutama pattern to represent various other things but the more traditional meaning is about whakapapa.
Na Te Po represents darkness and light - sharing a constant space but also individual spaces where we believe that darkness occurs without light and vice versa. It is anchored in the richness of the poutama design - and inspiring a connection to whakapapa that our tupuna knew and lived by.
Na Te Po is also part of the 2019 Pohutukawa - Matariki - Te Waka o Rangi collection
