This gorgeous Huia Feather Brooch is made from New Zealand rimu. Painted by hand, this unique piece was designed and made right here in Wellington.
The warm tones of the timber contrast beautifully with the black and white detailing. This stylish brooch adds a lovely final touch to any outfit, and also makes a fabulous gift.
The Huia is an extinct species of bird once native to Aotearoa, New Zealand. The last confirmed sighting of the bird was in 1907.
Known for its distinct bill shape and sheer beauty, it was regarded by Māori as tapu (sacred) and the wearing of the feathers was reserved for people of high status.
