Kia ora Goina,
A very late reply sorry! We were in the middle of moving house when this order was placed. Just wanted to give big thanks for the amazing service, and taonga that we received for our daughters 18th birthday present.

All the best for future business! I will definitely be recommending to my friends and whānau.

I just wanted to let you know how happy my husband was to open his replacement waka!! He didn’t even notice the small chips 😉 Many thanks for helping me replace a special gift and for being transparent about the imperfections (and the discount of course!). Hope all is well over there – give Aotearoa a big hug from me.

* Customer ordered a yellow glass canoe, but we noticed a few small chips at the base. We offered a different colour, however, customer really wanted this one, as their yellow glass waka was broken by the cat.
