Pēpi Tae – Baby Coloured tiedye
Additionally known as @pepitaedye
– written in our indigenous language of New Zealand Te Reo Maori
Ko Freya Ahau
I am of Māori decent, formally known as a casual stay at home Māmā who wanted to create one of a kind tshirts for my two boys – Kawatapuarangi & Zebediah Snow.
I started dyeing at home whilst pregnant with Zebe, at the time i was studying Small Business Management. Additionally the idea to hand-craft using dye gave me an affordable opportunity to create unique t-shirts for my eldest son Kawa (at the time) to be able to express his individual coulourful-self & I found myself in love with each piece. The amount of interest was encouraging, which sparked my motive to create a Facebook page. Grateful for the support given from whanau & friends.
