Aeon Giftware

Aeon Giftware Maori art. Distinctive New Zealand wooden souvenirs and gifts.

Aeon (Ay-on) is a Latin transliteration from the Koine Greek word ‘ho aion’. It typically refers to life or lifespan. ‘Aeon’ also has associations with ‘age’, ‘longevity’, and ‘medieval’. Though more common usage is for any long, indefinite, period of time.

To us Aeon simply means ‘heirlooms that will last forever’.

Our range of contemporary ethnic New Zealand wooden souvenirs and gifts are inspired by our Maori heritage. We are a passionate bunch of kiwi’s who are proud of who we are and what we do!

Aeon’s beginnings, like many businesses, grew from a passion – owner Mike Carlton has always been passionate about art, Maori art and Maori design.

Mike is of Ngati Whakaue descent (a Te Arawa sub-tribe) with affiliations to the Hinemoa Point Marae in Rotorua, New Zealand.

His lineage can be traced back to the Te Arawa canoe. This waka was first laid ashore in the Bay of Plenty. The waka travelled from Hawaiki (Tahiti) in the mid 14th century.
