We are a whānau owned and operated business located in Rotorua, Aotearoa.
Curating a range of gift boxes with quality in mind. We have searched Aotearoa and abroad
to bring you a range of premium gift boxes that exclusively showcase pakihi māori (māori businesses) and their products.
We are incredibly proud to tautoko (support), showcase and work alongside the many
talented pakihi māori from across Aotearoa and abroad, while actively encouraging and incorporating
Te Reo Māori and Te Āo Māori.
We are still at the beginning of our reo journey as a whānau, alongside our tamāhine,
and are growing and learning everyday.
Our pakihi is another way we are able to immerse ourselves in our culture all while providing a service
and a unique platform that supports other pakihi māori.
The Koha Collective was created after I returned to Aotearoa from overseas and began at a kaupapa māori
professional services firm where 100% of the clients and the majority of the team were māori and where
Te Āo Māori was a key focus of the business.
This kaupapa māori and whānau environment rekindled our reo journey and the fire was reignited to immerse
ourselves and our whānau in our culture.
As the Event and Office Manager I was regularly running into dead ends trying to find gift boxes to celebrate
special occasions and milestones for colleagues, clients and whānau that met our needs:
Supported pakihi māori and their products.
Offered sustainable packaging.
Provided a professional and reliable service.
Offered a various range of premium options for different occasions.
Provided prices that were within budget.
Offered a 'one stop shop' option without multiple deliveries and delivery fees.
From these endless searches, The Koha Collective was created, to bring the product we have been
searching for all these years to you all.
We look forward to curating gift boxes to be shared with your friends, whānau, colleagues or clients
to celebrate your special occasions.
Ngā mihi i tō tautoko,
