Recycled plastic Kawakawa leaf earrings.
Kawakawa is a special plant that grows throughout Te Ika-a-Māui (North Island) and the top half of Te Waipounamu (South Island), it has culinary and medicinal uses. It is said that kawakawa was the first of the healing plants to be planted by Tāne-māhuta who imbued it with the healing qualities of all the other plants giving it pride of place among rongoā rākau (medicinal trees). Kawakawa has beautiful glossy heart-shaped leaves which often contain holes caused by the kawakawa looper moth caterpillar.
At Remix Plastic we love the combination of practicality and beauty embodied by the kawakawa leaves!
