Women who were skilled in the traditional art of weaving were, and still are highly valued within Maori society. They created not only pieces for decorative purposes but for protection from weather, weaponry in war and special pieces that suited particular tasks for the purpose of food gathering and storage.
The highly decorated korowai or cloaks were worn by chiefs and were a symbol of their prestige and power.
