Muka Umbilical Cord Tie with Hapopo Pounamu. Locally made.

Muka Cord made from Harakeke (flax) has been long noted for its antibacterial properties and a beautiful natural alternative to plastic clamps. They have been used traditionally for centuries very safely and seem softer and more comfortable for your wee one. Muka Umbilical Cord Ties are very easy to use and come with instructions.

The Harakeke has been locally sourced and prepared with care given to the mother plant and appropriate Karakia given during harvesting. It is washed in warm water after the fibres have been stripped to remove any other plant matters; it is then dried, and hand plaited with special blessings of love, courage and wellbeing for this new souls journey.

Pounamu or Greenstone is regarded as a stone sacred to the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. As a Taonga -meaning treasured, and it should be worn with respect and pride. Pounamu is a gift from the heart.

This will be the exact piece you will receive in the photos, there may be a slight degree of colour variation based on different computer or mobile phone screen resolutions that you are viewing from.


A traditional teardrop pendant which is known to the Maori of New Zealand as the Roimata. It is said to represent the flow of positive energy, healing, comfort and strength on your journey through life. Teardrop pendants are generally regarded as touchstones, ideal for meditation. They also represent a connection to the land.

We love the Pounamu we purchased from these guys and really appreciate how they replaced the cord for us a year later.

We guarantee that any Greenstone Shop piece will survive to become an heirloom piece, spreading its mana throughout your whanau if it is well cared for, loved and respected.
