Baby onesies & family sleep-ware that is comfy, warm and showcases our unique culture and identity.

About Whenua

I had this idea In my head about creating a baby onesie that could represent the beauty of different cultures especially towards our Māori culture and also the Polynesian side which was inspired to me by my husband and beautiful children who are both of Māori and Polynesian decent.

When I would dress our daughter Milayna (who was 8 months at the time) there were no styles anywhere.

So I decided to sketch up a design to see what It would look like, and before you know it mum and I decided to create this business.

With almost one year of planning and researching we were able to release our pēpi kākahu to everyone, and now includes a pj range and slipper range.
