Our Story

Our story starts with our parents touching base in Sydney Australia, 1981. Our Dad is Raro-Tahitian, and our Mum is of Maori decent from the Nga Pui tribe in Kaikohe. As children we grew up in Australia, but our parents always reminded us of our heritage. We loved listening to stories of the old ways and how food would always be a stable to bring our loved ones together.

Together, we have over 10 years’ experience selling a variety of New Zealand and Pacific Island goods to the Perth area. We aim to help bring a warm feel to your whare or home in a simple and affordable way no matter where you may be in the world.
