Nephrite jade in New Zealand is known as pounamu in the Māori language (often called "greenstone" in New Zealand English), and plays an important role in Māori culture. It is considered a taonga, or treasure, and is therefore protected under the Treaty of Waitangi.
Joe's passion for geology extended beyond Australian shores with the creation of the 'Kiwi Jade Stone' Raw Silk Jacket. The muted green silk is prominent against the backdrop of the black silk, giving the weave elegant detail. Perfectly paired with black trousers or denim for interchangeable style that will transform any outfit.
