July has arrived and with it brings the colder weather, we hope you are all keeping warm! With the shorter days and longer nights, we decided this month to celebrate one of our night loving native birds, the Ruru.
The Ruru, commonly known as the Morepork, is a small native bird known for its distinctly haunting call. They hide during the day and favour the night and are often found nestled in amongst the trees of our native forests. In Maori mythology, the Ruru was seen as a watchful guardian and was said to forewarn bad events with its call.
We have collaborated with three of our amazing artists; Tania Mallow to create an exclusive Ruru necklace, Bob Steiner to create an exclusive Ruru mug alongside his pre-exsiting Ruru ceramics and Reuben Price to create an exclusive Ruru lamp.
