NIHO TANIWHA MULTI Collection

Introducing our NIHO TANIWHA MULTI Collection inspired by the use of Niho Taniwha (triangular teeth shapes) used in Maori cultural design work from visual arts, weaving and tattooing. Here we experimented with a sequenced repeat allowing the niho taniwha design to breathe with block colours (white, green) giving a different yet uniform layout. Sometimes different just equals different in a world of polarities.
