The Koru is a Maori word for “bight” or “loop” and refers to the new shoots of the silver fern. This spiral-shaped Maori design is derived from the unfolding of the silver fern frond.
The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic for new life, new beginnings, hope, perfection, rebirth, a new start, awakening,
personal growth, purity, nurturing, a new phase (in life), the spirit of rejuvenation, and peace.
This Koru men’s necklace comes in sterling silver with a leather cord.
We lovingly wrap each item in hessian and package it in our square ilala palm baskets. Due to the handmade nature of the baskets and the organic material used - colour and pattern may vary. Our baskets are bought from local Zimbabwean groups who promote fair trade and self-sufficiency.
