In a world of consumerism, excess and fast-fashion, it’s good to stop and champion the local designers who steer clear of sweat shops and do things a little differently.
Here’s a few of our favourite NZ brands, who run their businesses ethically.
Beautiful drapey garments that are 100% organic and fair trade.
The Bread & Butter Letter
Vintage finds, local made jewellery, and cute stationery.
Harry Were Knits
Quality jerseys, tops and socks hand-knitted by New Zealand women, with wool handspun in the Marlborough Sounds.
Perfectly crafted shirts, everything (down to the dye) is organic.
Stationery that gives back. For every book you buy, Frank gives a school book to a Kiwi child in need.
The Good Design Store
