Matariki is a cluster of stars visible low in the North East sky just before dawn. Matariki’s appearance in midwinter signals the start of the Maori New Year. Matariki is relatively close to earth, a mere 440 light years away! The Matariki cluster is visible in other parts of the world, and is also known as Pleiades, Seven Sisters and Subaru.
These tea towels are the perfect purchase - iconic image, stylish design, necessary and inexpensive. They make a great gift because they are unbreakable and cheap to post. If they are not being sent around the globe how about buying one to jazz up a bottle of wine for that important friend? Tres chique!
