LEGACY - "... for something handed down from one generation to the next ..."

WANOA FOUR is a whānau of intelligent creatives, deeply committed to inspiring pride in identity!   


Designed and made in New Zealand, we are about celebrating whakapapa (genealogy), craftsmanship, innovation and indigenous design solutions - a mash up of meaningful creation where purpose fuels passion, good design and good futures. 

We believe in values-based design approaches - designing for longevity and purpose creates an opportunity for a deeper connection, transitioning roles from consumer to kaitiaki (guardian).

'Kaitiakitanga includes active stewardship or guardianship to sustain people and natural resources for the future. The relationship between the health of the wider natural ecosystem and the wellbeing of the people is intrinsically intertwined.'
