At the time Erenora wrote this book, it was one of the first written from a weaver's perspective. A valuable resource for all weaving students, Māori Weaving with Erenora Puketapu-Hetet emphasises the importance of the spiritual side of Māori weaving, which cannot be separated from the manual skills. The book includes a guide to the many plants that can be used for weaving and dyeing and step-by-step instructions for weaving a kono, a headband and two kinds of traditional plaits.
Well known in Aoetearoa New Zealand for her weaving, Erenora's work has also been exhibited widely throughout Australia, the Pacific, Europe and North America. Her concern for the future of Māori weaving, particularly the need for students to be aware of the traditional customs of this sacred art from, was her main motive in writing this text.
