When Māori originally arrived in Aotearoa (New Zealand), they encountered a cold climate. They used their weaving skills to produce korowai (cloaks) and other useful objects such as kete (baskets) and whāriki (mats). The most widely used weaving material was harakeke - otherwise known as New Zealand flax. Traditional weaving is full of symbolism and meaning. Each piece of raranga is a reminder of the arts and stories Māori people brought across the seas with them.

We offset our use of natural materials by operating our Memorial Tree Program. When you purchase one of our coffins, a memorial tree will be planted on your behalf.
The tree will be planted by the Men of the Trees society, who are a non-profit, non-political group dedicated to the reforestation, maintenance and protection of trees in Australia. Your funeral director will supply you with a certificate explaining the Memorial Tree Program.
