Be embraced by a piece of New Zealand

Wrapt in New Zealand creates hand woven gifts that represent a genuine piece of New Zealand. Your will be impressed by the intricacy and intrigued by the authentic references to New Zealand’s cultural and natural heritage.  A Wrapt in New Zealand creation is a stunning, one-of-a-kind, enduring reminder of your, or your visitors, time in New Zealand.

Wrapt in New Zealand uses Merino and rare breed wools, 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. Care instructions are also included.  Items are woven to order and usually require a 2 week lead time.

The designs below are available as:

Blanket/Throw (110cm x 110cm)
Wrap/Shawl (50cm x 175cm)
Traditional Scarf (25cm x 170cm)
Lightweight Infinity Scarf (20cm x 150cm)
