A #supportlocal Christmas Gift Guide

If ever there was a time to support local New Zealand businesses, 2020 is it! So we've compiled a list of some of our favourite items that would make wonderful Christmas gifts. Naturally these items also tick the sustainable and/or ethical boxes that are so important to us. And of course, we've added a handful of our own items to the list! We are of the mindset that all of us should be buying less. But when we make a purchase we need to be intentional about who we are supporting, where that item...

Let’s Get Ethical

We’re passionate about a lot of things at Kauri & Sons. We believe in the power of beautiful design. We love crafting high-quality clothing that combines soft-on-skin with a long-lasting durability. We’re proud to be a New Zealand-run business and delight in the beauty of Aotearoa and our environment. But if we were pushed to ask our number one priority – it’s not hard. We’re all about people. We reckon the popular whakatauki (saying) captures this in a way nothing else can. He aha t...

The Ace of Trace

Before you worry we’re getting all Big Brother on you – we’re not Liam Neeson. We don’t have an intricate web of spy-satellites helping us track every one of our happy Kauri & Sons customers. But we are deeply committed to ethically sourcing all the fibres and materials going into our New Zealand crafted clothing. So committed, in fact, that we can track every piece of cotton we use right back to the farmer that grew the crop. See, we want peace of mind with the clothes we make. We want ...

No Time For Waste!

Growing up in New Zealand means growing up with the ocean. Memories of summer holidays at the beach, fishing with family and boogie-boarding with kids seems like a common thread joining Kiwis together. So when we heard that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish, we were justifiably shocked. As we dug deeper, we discovered that more than 99% of textile products purchased for use end up rotting in landfill. We think our beautiful country deserves better than that – and we th...

Grounded in God’s Own

When it came to naming our business we knew what we wanted. Our name had to reflect our passion for Aotearoa, our love of family, and our desire to craft clothing that is friendly to the environment without compromising on endurance and quality. After countless cups of coffee and brainstorming sessions – we finally nailed it. Kauri & Sons. When the first explorers came to New Zealand, they were stunned by the kauri tree. Charles Darwin called it ‘the famous kauri pine’. Richard Cunningham...

Live & Let’s Dye!

If you’ve ever tried your hand at dying fabric before you know the process can be a little bit…messy. Splashes and stains, with all kinds of unknown chemicals working their magic to transform your shirt into a tie-dyed masterpiece. The problem is these traditional dyes are not only messy to use – but they’re messy for the planet. A big percentage – sometimes as high as 20% – of the dye used doesn’t bind to the fabric, but is instead washed away with the wastewater. And at ma...

Our Cotton Difference? It’s Rain and Simple

You’d be forgiven for thinking all cotton is created equal. It’s white, it’s fluffy, it grows in the ground. Humans have been planting, cultivating and spinning cotton for thousands of years. So surely it’s all the same, right? Not quite! We believe clothes should be made with love and this needs to be woven into the materials we choose to use, and you choose for your child. This means Kauri & Sons need to use cotton which is friendly to both the world and your baby’s skin – and tha...
