|If you are wearing a korowai, it should be worn over the gown, and your degree hood or diploma scarf/stole should be worn over the korowai.
The korowai (Maori cloak) was a garment made in early Maori times and was generally woven or made from traditional materials like flax and feathers. It is worn as a mantle of prestige and honor.
Everyone has different reasons for wearing Korowai on their graduation day whether it be, a sense of identity, a graduation acknowledgement, a congratulatory gift, a connection to our NZ heritage or family tradition.
We are now selling Korowai, made by local craftspeople at Puti Design. These stunning cloaks look great on graduation day, and make a fantastic family heirloom.
The cloaks come with an export certificate should you wish to take them overseas. The cloaks come in four colours, and are hand made to your requirements – please ask for details.
There is a significant amount of work that goes into each Korowai and we are pleased to offer them to you for only $550.00 incl GST
We have taken stock a 2nd style of Korowai with a wider band, and offer this style at $650.00 incl GST
