Ko Wai Mātou | About Us
The wāhine behind Tuhi Stationery Ltd share a common bond – we LOVE being wāhine Māori. We were blessed to be raised with nannies that loved to write and keep journals. Who told us stories of the marama and taiao, about our history as voyagers, strategists, and kaitiaki. Who told us we could be anything we wanted, anywhere in the world.
As adults in corporate worlds, we use stationery and planning tools daily. But we struggled to find resources in Te Reo Māori, that acknowledged our world view, our way of life, and our ways of planning. So out of pure frustration of not "seeing ourselves" in the tools we used - we decided to create our own!.
It has been a massive learning curve for us, but we have loved every step of it. As we continue to evolve in our business, we create more stationery products that reflect what we use and know in our lives, whānau and work, daily.
We hope you enjoy using what we have created, as much as we have enjoyed developing them!
