Wrapt in New Zealand uses Merino and rare breed wools, corriedale, possum down and alpaca, cashmere and mohair fleeces from animals raised in New Zealand. These yarns are spun and dyed by kiwi artisans before being transformed by a sixth-generation New Zealander into stunning, one-of-a-kind, hand-woven pieces inspired by the colours of the birds of Aotearoa.
Wrapt in New Zealand has an uncompromising commitment to craftsmanship. It takes several days to transform more than a kilometre of yarn into a finished piece. Individual motifs inspired by Maori & Pacifica design are painstakingly added, uniquely customising each piece.
Each piece is individually presented and includes details of the story and inspiration for each design. No two pieces are the same – the inspiration is expressed differently in each piece.
The kiwi is the iconic New Zealand bird, our unofficial national emblem. It cannot fly and has loose, hair-like feathers and a long narrow bill. It dwells on the ground and nests in burrows. There are several species of kiwi, all listed as endangered or vulnerable. Despite their small size (similar to a chicken) they are related to emus, and are known for laying the largest egg in relation to body size in the world.
