Muka Flax- Harakeke

Muka is a natural and traditional Māori resource extracted from Harakeke (NZ Native Flax Bush). 

It may not be readily accessible to weavers today. Processing and preparing muka can be time consuming and requires skill to extract the clean white fibres to the desired standard.  

The Haka Shop can supply a specialised high quality processed muka, we do the hard work for you to make it ready for the weaver to use. We use traditional techniques passed down by our ancestors to harvest and prepare the muka that gives each whenu we process, the care it deserves.
