Click on each of these superb traditional kaitaka, or tāniko-bordered cloaks, for more information about them. They all date from around the early 19th century and are made mainly of flax fibre with a narrow tāniko border at each side, and a wider border at the lower edge. Pātea are also cloaks of fine flax, but have a border at the bottom only.
