Amanda Jayne Creative
Amanda from ‘Amanda Jayne Creative’ is a mother of three. She designs, cuts, and sews each piece from her small studio in their family home in Temuka. She has a background in fashion and graphic design and a real love for beautiful New Zealand leather.
It is not just the feeling, but the grain, and the scent of leather that draws her to it. By investing in a leather item, you are purchasing something that will last year after year, and will only get better with age.
With the help of her partner and their wee tribe of delightful little people, her range of bags grew and their gorgeous soft-soled, leather baby shoes were introduced.
Amanda Jayne Creative use 100% compostable courier bags for delivery.SKU: n/a

Becca Huxley is the creator of Handmade Hihi. Hihi means ray of sunshine, and every creation made by hand aims to spread that sunshine. Each pair is totally handmade using earring hooks made of 925 sterling silver.
Hihi (Stitchbird) is also a native New Zealand bird that Becca found on her travels across the North Island of New Zealand. That’s how the name “Hihi Handmade” originated.
Becca loves crocheting and making handmade pieces. Each of her creations is a little ray of sunshine created with care, time, and passion. She is a self-taught crochet artist and she makes her own designs!
Sitting by the lake and designing a new concept, bringing the idea to life, and watching it make other people happy, is Becca’s favourite thing to do. In its own way, each handmade object is subtly different, special, and beautiful.
These little rays of sunshine are intended to make the wearer’s day brighter.SKU: n/a

Ria is the creator of Poi Creations. As a mother of 4 growing boys that love to represent their region for sports, she found it hard selling raffles, batons up tickets, etc. to the same family members. They all work hard for the money so thought due to her love of crafting and making things with hands, she could make Poi to help. Poi, moved to Poi Xmas decorations, then to Poi earrings.
Ria was born and bred in Porirua and she is a descendent of Ngati Toa, Ngati Raukawa, Ngai Tahu, Rongomaiwahine, and Tuwharetoa. Although they make mostly poi earrings, they are passionate about creating products that are eco-friendly with reusable resources, such as bio-degradable bags, old pillow stuffing, and wool from Op-Shops or leftovers from friends and family.
Ria was very proud when New Zealand PM Jacinda Arden was seen wearing one of her Poi earrings creations recently.SKU: n/a
