Kuki Reka Kani, loosely translated means cookie cutters. Kuki Reka refer to the delicious cookies that have been made with these cutters. Reka means delicious in Māori and for the purposes of our products Reka also stands for: Rauawaawa Enterprise for Kaumātua Aspirations. We are proud that our products are New Zealand made and that they have been named and lovingly inspired by Kaumātua at Rauawaawa.
Pikorua (double twist)
The Pikorua, double twist, represents the lives of two groups or cultures joining together as one. It is based on the arms of the pikopiko fern and is a powerful expression of loyalty, love and friendship: staying strong for eternity, as there is no end point to the twist. It depicts two new shoots growing together.
It also refers to the three baskets of knowledge that were brought back to Earth by Tane when he returned from his climb to the highest heavens after his parents Ranginui and Papatuanuku were seperated. The three baskets are Te Kete Tuatea (basket of light), Te Kete Tauri (basket of darkness) and Te Kete Aronui (basket of pursuit).
