Introducing...
Heartwood ‘Joyful’

Kohia nga taikākā

These words are a whakataukī, or saying, in the beautiful Maori language of New Zealand. Its approximate meaning is to gather the heartwood. To gather the heartwood is to strive for worthy things in life, and to live according to your values.

This is a beloved personal motto behind Aroha Textiles.

In nature, the heartwood forms the central strong pillar of a tree – it is what provides the support to keep a tree standing. Much beloved and sought after for woodworking, heartwood has a functional beauty and is prized for its colour and strength.
Joyful is the second colourway in this design and this time too, we hope to offer such qualities to you in woven wrap form.

The Heartwood design to me is reminiscent of building with blocks alongside my daughter, and a wooden puzzle cube that belonged to my father. I was born in Tokoroa, a logging town. A forestry family. My father has worked most of his life in the NZ forestry industry, so my childhood was filled with the beauty and allure of wood. Building things from wood, being surrounded by wood grain, and walking up many hills to see many trees. Wood and trees and more wood. Dad is an expert in hardwoods. Specifically, he is an expert in Eucalypts, which makes the eucalyptus-derived yarn used in 'Joyful' entirely appropriate.

Joyful has been made in a small batch, in a cotton and Tencel blend, in a fresh minty green. Like Earnest before it, it is light and soft in the hand, moldable after the first wash, and wonderfully floppy and obedient to wrap with. Perfect for a new squish, it will also reliably provide generous support for heavier babies & toddlers in breathable multi-layered carries. Being versatile and easycare, this could be your new beater wrap for any time of year!

This design is a nod to my father, and also a nod of solidarity, to all of you, fellow parents striving to provide the utmost love and care to the next generation on earth.
