When it comes time to sit back and relax with a book, the Hei Tiki bookmark will come in handy! Crafted from Eco friendly, renewable and strong bamboo plywood. Inlaid with Paua shell eyes and a leather tassel tied to the top.
The Hei Tiki represents the human form and one's ancestors. Traditionally passed from parent to child or used for protection and good luck. It is believed that Hei Tiki was respected as the teacher of all things and the wearer of this symbol is therefore seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character.
Bamboo is one of natures wonders and is one of the only carbon neutral, renewable, Eco friendly, natural resources on our planet! Bamboo has thousands of uses, from bookmarks, medicines & foods to clothing or even scaffolding! Bamboo is actually from the grass family and is not a tree as you might think. Bamboo can grow up to 98 inches in just 24 hours and it produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees would! We would be silly not to use this amazing material for our bookmarks!
