DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Kaha means "strength", "power", but has also other meanings related to this idea, such as loud, positive, efficiency.

We called Kaha this desing requested by Bjoern on account of several elements in it that enforce this idea of quiet strength: the traditional hammerhead motif of the armband indicated strength and tenacity, and the eels recall the fight won by the warrior Maui against the giant eel moray Te Tuna. Tikis symbolize fertility and protection, on the sea and on the land, as symbolized by the waves and mountains, a protection coming also from ancestors, whose eyes are on the eels sides. The adult fern leaf indicates maturity, and the fern buds are for the descendants. Other elements symbolize good luck, family, travel and adaptability (lizard, sun, turtle, shark teeth...).
