Maggie did the weaving and Brian Topless made a carved frame for the cloak to sit in. Brian also supplied a suitcase for the cloak to be transported in. Maggie made a carved stand to hang the cloak over while she was making it. The stand is with her Grand-daughter Margaret Nuku. All the weaving was done at Maggies home in Opunake in the 70s.
