The Process

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 Inspiration

Pukeko are found everywhere in New Zealand. These swamp hens can be seen all the way from the far south to the north, beside lakes, beaches and motorways too. They are a close cousin of the Takahe.  Pukekos are blue and black, with a bright red bill and legs. They have a white under-tail that isn’t often seen.
