This Maori Boys Kapa Haka costume is a delightful and inexpensive way of dressing up for a Kapa Haka event.  The costume accurately replicates that worn by adults to sing, dance, and do the haka, without the expense of the intricate woven bands and flax piupius.

This outfit is perfect for Nation Days and for young kapa haka groups, especially primary school.

The Maori Boys/ Mens Kapa Haka costume is sized:
Size  Age   Waist
cm (up to)
inch (up to)
 Small  2-4  56  22  26  10 1/4
 Medium  4-6  58  23  32  12 1/2
 Large  6-8  63  25  36  14
 XL  10-12  73.5  29  43  17
 2XL  14-20
Sm Mens
 84  33  44  17 1/2
 3XL  Mens  96  38  44  17 1/2
 4XL  Mens  100  39 1/2  45  17 3/4

The set includes an adjustable headband, adjustable woven waist band (tatua), and the mock piupiu skirt, which is cotton knit strips on an adjustable black elastic band.  (The black shorts worn underneath are not included).

The total effect is stunning.  

The costume design was derived from the costume worn by the Otatara Cultural Club of Taradale, New Zealand.  The design depicts New Zealand national bird, the Kiwi, which is surrounded by the Niho-Taniwha pattern ( dragons teeth) and the Three Baskets of Knowledge.  This design was the work of three people, namely Ellen Coulter, Ngaupoko Batt, and Baden Batt.  Only Baden is still alive, and he gives his unreserved consent to the costume and the Maori motifs used on them.

Note to schools:  As these costumes are always in high demand, we cannot afford to have any out on approval.  If you would like a sample, please order and pay for the costume(s) you require. Should you decide they are not what you require, we are very happy to receive the costume back (in original condition) for a full refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping).  Many schools pay by credit card so the transaction is easy to do, and a refund is easy too.

Hi, Received my lovely slippers today and I am very happy love the colour. My current NZ slippers are just worn out after many years.
I am more than satisfied as I know my new pair will last a long time, I have bought my slippers from NZ for many years as I'm assured they will last as I wear them all the time inside and out.
