Artifacts, or artefacts, are defined as objects made by a person, such as a tool or a decoration, especially one that is of historical interest.  These artifacts are New Zealand made clubs, taiaha and waka, replicas of those used in Maori wars.  Shipped worldwide from New Zealand.
These artefacts include greenstone mere, as well as carved wood taiaha, patu, mere, tewhatewha, wahaika and kotiate. 
These items are now more popular than a 21st Key, as well as being popular business and corporate gifts.  They are also a wonderful souvenir of New Zealand.
The greenstone mere are made in New Zealand from pounamu, our native greenstone jade.  The rest are made in New Zealand from various timbers.
Choose from club type artefacts, including the wahaika, patu, and kotiate, traditionally used in close hand to hand combat. Or the larger tewhatewha and taiaha.  Warriors trained for many years in the art of mau rakau, learning to parry, feint and strike.  
Also available here are replica Maori waka (canoe), some with paddles.

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.

Hello Lesley and everyone at ShopNZ!
Our shipment of NZ tea (Bell and Choysa) arrived today! We are thrilled the teas made it here despite the Covid19 pandemic! Thank you so much!
We are enjoying our first cups of these delicious teas and will enjoy many more in the days to come as we shelter at home in Washington State USA.

Thanks so much, arrived in time for Mother's Day and this is what my Mum had to say about it: 
"Thanks so much for the wonderful present. The scarf is so warm and will be so well worn. Black is so versatile, goes with everything and smart too. Great gift!
