Books and Starter Kits

These books evolved from the need for an instruction manual for beginners who wished to learn NZ Maori korowai (cloak) weaving techniques. They are a spiral bound A4 format booklet with many colour photos making them user friendly and useful for anyone who wishes to know more about the skills in korowai weaving.
