What does our Tohu mean?
Our Māpihi & Co. tohu (logo) is uniquely designed to represent whakapapa Māori and the journey of pēpi's creation to life. Our tohu also represents growth, development and the unique bond and connection between Māmā and pēpi together with the interconnection of their whenua (placenta).
The center design is the Kukune or foetus which depicts the conception of pēpi who is forever bounded and protected by two koru designs that represent Māmā and Pāpā. The three outer patterns represents Māmā's gestation and whakapapa lines as she navigates through the three phases of Hapūtanga (pregnancy).
The Unaunahi pattern inside our tohu replicate fish scales to depict the waikahu (amniotic fluid) that surround and protect pēpi in the amniotic sack. The Unaunahi pattern also symbolises safety and protection.
What our customers are saying
Nāku noa Mr & Mrs Wharepapa
My daughter and Son in law have received their gift for our special bundle of joy to come. Thank you so much, made it easy to buy and achievable while an ocean may separate us your gift has made us all feel together.
Honestly opening our taonga was so breath taking. Myself and my 4 other children were in awe. So professionally made, such fast turn around and you can instantly feel every item is made with Aroha. Our new baba is blessed to have been gifted such a special taonga. Thank you Māpihi & Co.
We absolutely adore your taonga and the meaning behind each item. My mokopuna look gorgeous in their Māpihi clothing.
Thanks for our Gift Box, the designs are awesome! Although the whānau can't come to Australia to see our Mozzie baby, they love seeing him in traditional Māori designs. I love dressing up my little Aussie baby in Māori gear. All Blacks Jersey next!
Such a beautifully presented and well thought out business! Love the effort you've put into all the behind the scenes.
My gift set came with a card that had the designs meaning... I love the whole gift set so much, just amazing. Thank you so much Māpihi & Co.
It's impossible not to want to buy anything from this site. There's so much to want.
I just received my order today and I love it!! The packaging was beautiful n everything is such good quality!! Thankyou for helping me show my daughter our culture while being raised in aussie.
We received your products as a Christmas gift from baby's Nanny. Love them!
