Ronja Schipper of re:purpose has been crafting lovingly up-cycled jewellery since 2015. By using under-valued resources such as discarded bicycle inner tubes to create her stunningly soft and silky feather earrings, she aims to highlight our relationship with our at-risk environment and its resources.

This tasseled scarf by Flora & Fabric is a soft and beautiful 50% wool, 50% silk textile blend, eco-printed with Japanese maple leaves, sumac, and onion skins.

Through her work as textile artist and eco dyer, Karen Williamson of Nuku finds a spiritual connection to the land and its changing seasons. Using only natural resources, foraged from the local Kaipara landscape, Karen infuses prints of leaves, petals, seeds and bark into natural fibres to create a unique range of scarves, clothing and gifts. The name Nuku comes from te reo Māori, meaning earth. Karen lives in rural Kaiwaka and is building a sustainable lifestyle on a half-acre section with her husband, Luke.
