About us

Kia Ora! 

Are you are looking for authentic precious Maori Taonga (heritage treasures), a unique gift for someone special, or some Kiwiana memories?  Tuatara Design Store is the Whangarei gallery and gift store - a great place to find that special piece of unique Northland Art, cultural items, and gifts.

Every item we sell is either made here by hand, or designed in New Zealand - Aotearoa, most are using NZ materials

Many of our items are "one offs" but many are not ... when you see a “Sold Out” sign under a product here and you are desirous of it, please contact us to see if we can get more in, or have something similar.

Enjoy browsing, and feel free to make contact if you require any more information.

BREAKING NEWS - GREENSTONE/ POUNAMU/ NZ JADE - IS NOW ONLY ALLOWED TO BE SHIPPED WITHIN NEW ZEALAND! Same for whalebone, even if sourced from iwi through traditional protocols after a stranding.

Due to regulations outside our control, we are unable to supply any form of greenstone or whalebone to addresses outside New Zealand. Sincere apologies to all our international customers!! 

Thanks for visiting, and see you again soon :)

Ka Kite Ano.
