We currently have a SET of 7 Male Piupiu with the Korirangi Pattern in Stock, Sizes are 2x 34″, 2x 36″, 2x 38″ and 1x 42″ (17″ drop) and $4128,00 plus GST. If you wish to purchase these as a set please e-mail us at Flaxworx@gmail.com
Piupiu do take a long time and lots of resources to make by hand (on average about 40hrs for one!) as well as considerable skill and experience and this is reflected in their price. We are happy to provide you with a free piupiu quote for your school or group which you can use for any funding application or to place a firm order.
We will need the following details from your side for a quote: Sizes (waist measurements in cm or inches NOT Dress size or Age or S,M,L!), Gender and corresponding numbers. If you have an existing pattern we also require a photo of that to give you an accurate price as some patterns are more complex (and time-consuming) than others and this will be reflected in the price.
The best way to go about it would be to measure some of the groups’ members. Perhaps one of the smallest, one of the largest and a few in between. Add a few inches for overlap and then work out how many would fit into each size group.
Please see here for a sample quote.
We make piupiu as a team of 3 Full time and 2 part-time weavers from around the country and work on a “First in, First Serve” basis and usually have a waiting list. We thank you for your understanding!
