Christmas is easily our favourite holiday season at Blackwell and Sons. So our clever design team at the shop has put together this series of ornament designs, celebrating some of Greytown's most beautiful buildings. Papawai Marae is just minutes from the heart of Greytown and is one of the most historically important marae in New Zealand.
Papawai has been home to Wairarapa Maori for hundreds of years, and in the late 1800s it was the focus of Kotahitanga, the national Maori parliament movement. It's still very much a community hub today.
Our Greytown Christmas Ornament collection is designed by Paul Rees (our friend and designer we have worked with for 25 years), locally made using sustainable materials and finished in either a silver, gold or copper surface. Collect all four for your home or send them to friends and family overseas who won't be home for Christmas this year.
