Koru is the Maori word for “bight” or “loop” and refers to new shoots of the silver fern. The spiral-shaped koru design is derived from this unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic for a new life, new beginnings, and hope.
The Koru is hand carved out of authentic Sono wood that is indigenous to Indonesia. Sono wood is the foundation of many Indonesian villages and houses because of its abundance and more importantly, it is naturally termite resistant.
The Koru represents Prosperity and Good Fortune for New Beginnings.
