Nau Mai haere mai Tamahine Boutique
We are operating online & at markets for shoppers who are wanting unique Māori & New Zealand inspired clothing, décor & accessories
Our products are designed with respect to traditional Māori art forms such as Kowhaiwhai, Taniko & Whakairo, & our décor explores Te Reo - Kupu, Waiata, Whakatuaki & much more.
We source ethically & sustainably from New Zealand & overseas providing you with clothing made from organic, recycled & premium cotton materials. Some of our apparel may contain polyester as sometimes we choose durability(lasts longer) over biodegradable.
Our décor & Jewellery are handmade & we are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint as well as helping you to do the same.

Hello, my name is Autum & I live in Westport on the West Coast of the South Island. I am a self taught artist/creator that is passionate about celebrating Māori Culture & Aotearoa.
Tamāhine is the kupu Māori word for daughter, I decided to name the company this after the birth of my daughter Elizabeth. She is the driving force behind me that ignited by passion for art & rediscovering my culture. Our children truly are the future & I believe we need to teach our tamariki pride in our identity aswell as better choices to make the world more sustainable.
With the support from family, friends & especially my fiancé I have been on a journey of learning/reconnecting & Tamāhine has become a space for me to express that journey. My passion comes from my whānau, my ancestors, my Iwi, New Zealand & my mixed ethnicity to create pieces that hopefully you can connect to.
