Kaitaka aronui/päwtea (fine cloak with deep lower töniko border and horizontal aho weft rows) (kaitaka; Unknown; undetermined; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; registration number: ME014336)
Note: The cloak combines two prestigious styles to outstanding effect. Fundamentally, it is a classic kaitaka – defined by its unadorned main body and borders of taniko (geometric patterning). The cross-over feature is the flowing dog-hair trim. Such trims are typically found on kahu kuri (dog-skin cloaks), which are the most prestigious of cloaks. However, the hair on this example is not from a kuri, the now-extinct Pacific dog. Further research may determine the breed
