New Zealandís First Environmentally Considerate Clothing and Gift Store

New Zealand Oilskin Wet Weather Wear

We have chosen to include these product in our range because they fit in so well with our environmental philosophy. Oilskin is a completely natural fabric made from 100% high grade cotton, closely woven and oil impregnated to a traditional New Zealand formula, which provides total wind and waterproofing, and is exceptionally hard wearing. Unlike most synthetic materials, it is both repairable and re-proofable and will give not just years, but decades of all weather service.

Possum/Merino Wool Knitwear

Exceptionally warm garments that epitomise our environmentally considerate philosophy. These knitted garments are made from a unique New Zealand yarn - a blend of 50% fine merino lambswool, 10% nylon, and 40% possum fur. (Each night 70-90 millions possums eat their way through 22,00 tonnes of native forest. The environmental destruction they cause is enormous.)
