Native Agent

Native Agent was launched in late 2004 to support and nurture NZ designers, craftspeople and artists.

Only stocking work designed and made in New Zealand, Native Agent has become a platform for emerging designers.

"When we established a business along creative lines, we wanted it to mean something, to embody the essence of our colonial and tribal histories, to celebrate the patterns of our lives in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and recognise and respect the creative minds that design and make beautiful things for us all to enjoy."

Nature Baby

For the last ten years, Nature Baby has been establishing itself in the New Zealand baby market. Long before the words "organic" and "sustainable" were used in every day conversation, Nature Baby was providing its customers with innovative and modern products for the conscious parent.

Those first ten years have seen Nature Baby grow and transform into a thriving retail business, online store and wholesaler. Their product range has constantly evolved and continues to expand, giving all parents the opportunity to provide a healthy and positive environment for their children to grow.

November Moon

Cathy Cullis's blog November Moon is a showcase for her variety of creative works.

I am in awe and enormously inspired by her mixed media work. Cathy creatively and meticulously works with a range of materials - in particular, vintage haberdashery, papers, threads and yarns.

What looks to be quite simple machine stitching is no doubt a focused, deliberate and highly practiced skill, combining a sense of whimsy with immense artistic ability.
