The Haka is a traditional ancestral war dance of the Māori people in New Zealand with a very special meaning 'Be a strong fighter, find strength by choosing to smile through whatever challenges life brings'.
Haakaa is a 100% family owned and New Zealand run company. The message behind their brand is a strong and passionate one and it is what drives us everyday to do what we do. Haakaa was developed through our struggle to find non-toxic and safe products for their daughter Courtney. Courtney is special needs being born with Autism among other disabilities. When protecting her health and preserving the environment for her future became our top priority, haakaa was born. Over the years, they found it extremely difficult to find green products suitable for infants and children. With most Eco baby brands only carrying a limited range and shipping to New Zealand was difficult and expensive. That was when they realised they could develop a range that is not only convenient and versatile, but also safe for more parents and their babies.
Today haakaa has an exciting range all made using environmentally friendly and safe raw materials such asstainless steel,glass,bamboo, andnatural rubber. All haakaa products are designed and tested in New Zealand, Manufactured in selected advanced international factories under strict quality controls and successfully tested against the worlds highest safety standards (such as European EN14350 and US FDA).
