About Us

With support from other passionate Kiwi we've celebrated what is special about our country with our own unique wares for over 25 years.
Our Focus

We are a small passionate Kiwi enterprise with a big history and a love for this place. Come visit us in mid-town Auckland City. Arohanui from the Pauanesia team.

Only at Pauanesia

Almost all of our products are designed, printed and constructed especially for Pauanesia. Our inspiration comes from our country's wild coast, the native bush, our stories, and passions. We endeavour to capture the beauty, colours and spirit of this land (wairua) in our textiles and other goods. We collaborate with local designers, artists, ceramists and jewellers along with small scale producers and agents to create true and fresh kiwi wares.

If you have seen something in Pauanesia that it is not on the website, please email us at or phone us on +64 9 366 7282 and we'll happily assist you.
