Resene has for many years supported the DIY Marae series, which focuses on collaborative efforts to protect and rejuvenate Marae buildings. Through those many projects, the Resene Heritage colour range has been a valuable and well-used reference. In many cases, early colours were similar for European and Maori buildings, purely because of the limited colour technology and palettes available.
Traditional Maori colours do have their own unique nuances though, and thanks to Wiremu Puke, Maori ethnographer, seven key hues have now been reproduced in Resene colour and make up the Traditional Maori Colour Palette, a new addition to the Resene Heritage colour collection.
