Did you know that Rourou and Kono Are Not The Same?

Nōu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai tatou kātoa.

With your food basket, with my food basket, all of us will prosper.

The rourou speaks so well about co-operation and it is one of the simplest and most quickly woven of baskets. A perfect 'bowl' for kai (well, most foods - except soup).

It is a five-cornered basket like the one pictured here woven by one of our online students - Bybi Clarke

Whereas, the kono is a simple four-cornered basket. 

Even though they may look the same, they are actually quite different baskets.
