Takurua or Hine Takurua (winter maiden) is known as Sirius in western/Greek astronomy, and can be found in the Canis Majoris star cluster. Hine Takurua is one of the two wives of Tamanuiterā, the other being Hine Raumati (summer maiden). Takurua is also considered as a star that marks the time of winter for many Māori in Aotearoa.

Here's a kīwaha (colloquial saying) that you can use to express how cold it is during winter:

Te anu o Takurua - The chill of Sirius.

Wee bit formal, not too casual. 
Rock up to any hui, date or outing knowing you're going to be warm like a takakau bread wrapped in a tea towel.
Can be partnered with your preferred smelly (perfume/cologne) to enhance yum factor. Smellies not recommended to be worn if you're actually going for a hunt or fish though.

Features include:
225gsm Long Sleeve with elastic cuffs.
Zipper on left chest pocket, 1/4 zipper on front.
TAIAO embroidered on chest pocket, TAIAO logo on back.
