Muka Pito Tie with Gemstone


Made from tumbled NZ Gemstones and Muka

PLEASE NOTE Due to order volumes we recommend you order with at least 2 weeks to go before your due date, and please allow a little extra time for delivery.  However i do always aim to dispatch all orders within 48hrs of purchase. If you need one urgently please though don’t hesitate to contact me and i will do my very best to get it to you in time. 

These Muka Pito (umbilical cord) Ties make a great natural alternative to conventional cord clamps.  They are easy to use, and they are soft on babies skin and dont get tangled up in nappies and clothing.  Muka is also renowned for its antibacterial properties, and because of this the pito heals very fast. Our muka ties are made from 100% natural products, no plastic means they are kinder on the planet. The muka is gathered, prepared and woven in a traditional and sustainable manner by our expert weaver.

Comes blessed and packaged with stone information and instructions for use.

Colour variation in the Muka is due to different flax varieties used. The muka can vary from creamy white through to golden tan colours.

Anklets/Bracelets/Necklace straps are all purchased seperately and come without a gemstone.

Taking into account comfort and how loose you would like to wear the item.  For example a wrist measuring 16cm suits a 17-17.5cm Bracelet. An ankle measuring 23cm suits a 25-25.5cm Anklet. If you are ordering a necklace, they will be bound at 60cm unless requested otherwise. 

It can also be useful to take into account the size and shape gemstone you want for an anklet/bracelet or necklace when choosing the stone for your muka pito tie.

Five stars! This was a beautiful product that we loved using for our newborn September 2023. It healed his umbilical cord in under a week and did a great job. Will recommend to all my friends and family

Excellent quality

This is my fourth purchase from this company and I’ve never been disappointed. Each piece is as unique as the baby I’ve brought it for.

Thanks so much Ella
