We choose fair trade because believe every life has equal value. In 2018 your support has helped us to create 185 days of fair trade employment, through the production of our apparel.
We are proud to work with two Kiwi owned businesses which provide fair-trade employment to workers. Fair trade saves and makes lives. It also provides freedom from poverty through employment opportunity.

- Are boards are crafted in-house: carved from recycled oak wine-barrel, rimu, or from renewable local macrocarpa and blackwood.
