Sheep, Kiwi, Maori Culture, Possum Nipple Warmers! - all the things NZ is famous for is what we're about at Rozcraft. We've been making souvenirs of NZ, kapa haka lines and possum/wool clothing since 1976, but most people - even in New Zealand - have never heard of us.
Pre Covid 19 we've predominantly supplied souvenir shops with quality handmade products and they have sold them on to tourists that visit NZ. Now the tourists are all gone and we've opened this new Shopify store to try to show the world what we do. We have 35 outworkers - mainly ladies but a couple of men too, working in their own homes making the products plus another 6 of us working full time in the factory. Roz started the business in 1976 and is still the owner today.
We use a lot of natural materials - like possum fur and sheep's wool - to make our products. People all over the world love them and we often get people who have bought them in their travels to NZ go home and show their friends who then buy themselves one off our website, but if they don't have that contact they just don't know we exist. You don't have to have been to New Zealand to love our products. It's the handmade natural aspect that makes us so unique. The products are light which helps with the cost of shipping the goods to you. We also sell some of the materials and tools we use in our DiY craft section.
Please help spread the word, help us keep our business going and our staff employed and at the same time make some people happy that they have found us - one of the few companies still making genuine souvenirs of New Zealand in New Zealand, not on a conveyor belt by someone half the world away from NZ. www.rozcraft.com
