Ria is the creator of Poi Creations. As a mother of 4 growing boys that love to represent their region for sports, she found it hard selling raffles, batons up tickets, etc. to the same family members. They all work hard for the money so thought due to her love of crafting and making things with hands, she could make Poi to help. Poi, moved to Poi Xmas decorations, then to Poi earrings.
Ria was born and bred in Porirua and she is a descendent of Ngati Toa, Ngati Raukawa, Ngai Tahu, Rongomaiwahine, and Tuwharetoa. Although they make mostly poi earrings, they are passionate about creating products that are eco-friendly with reusable resources, such as bio-degradable bags, old pillow stuffing, and wool from Op-Shops or leftovers from friends and family.
Ria was very proud when New Zealand PM Jacinda Arden was seen wearing one of her Poi earrings creations recently.SKU: n/a
