The handcrafted breastplate (Kōuma), meticulously carved from Aotearoa Argillite (Pakohe) in a striking dark green hue and smooth texture. Pakohe stone, a material highly valued across Aotearoa by Māori, was chosen for its exceptional properties of durability, strength, and its capacity to maintain a sharp edge, making it an ideal choice for crafting tools.

The breastplate offers both physical protection and symbolic significance when adorned over the chest. It is complemented by an adjustable, hand-woven cord in a rich auburn shade, ensuring it comfortably accommodates various body sizes.
