About Us

For the past 21 years we've celebrated what is special about our country with our own unique goods. Almost all our products are designed, printed and constructed especially for us. Our inspiration is the wild coast, the native bush, our stories and passions, and the wairua (spirit) of New Zealand.


Our focus for over 20 years has been to collaborate with local designers, artists, and jewellers along with small
scale producers and agents to create true and fresh
NZ mementos.

We tell the New Zealand story in unique home textiles, merino possum knitted accessories, bags, sarongs,
vintage kiwi chaps, jewellery, stationery and more.

We are a small passionate Kiwi enterprise with a big connection and love for this place. Come visit us.

Pauanesia's collection of printed home textiles capture
the beauty, the colours, and the spirit of our land -
in cushions, tablecloths, tea towels and table runners.
Every year a new collection of New Zealand-inspired home
textiles are designed and printed by us in small runs.
Four years ago we launched our Merino/Possum collection
ofscarves, wraps, hand-cosies and throws.

We collaborate with local jewellers, artisans, and
ceramic studios to fill Pauanesia with beautiful distinctive
items; all with a New Zealand story.
