365 Days of Fun and Chillaxation – Blog 215 – The Launch of Mohua Tees – Sustainably Produced Maori Design Tee-Shirts
Starting up a business. Would you do it? I’ve been hooked for a while, optimism and drive keep me in there. Some friends of mine here in Golden Bay have just taken a committed leap into the business world too – with a new fair-trade, GE Free, Maori designs tee-shirt business called ‘Mohua Tees’. I headed along to the launch of their business this evening at the world-famous Wholemeal Cafe.
If you’ve ever been down this road you’ll know how much work (or ‘mahi’ if we’re going to talk Maori) it takes to get these things off the ground. My friends were no exception! I know they’ve been pouring so much time and energy into this project over the past few months, and this is around having two year old twins!
So there they stood, the whanau (family), giving their launch speech and I felt so happy for them. Chachi (who is the Papa of the family) is the designer and he supplied all the amazing Maori designs for the tee shirts. He told the story of each design and they were touching and inspiring. Rea (Mama) took care of everything else – including ensuring the tees were fair-trade.
They’re in a beautiful range of colours and I’m going to stock up for Christmas.
