About Us

For the past 24 years we've celebrated what is special about our country with our own unique souvenirs and NZ gifts.

Almost all our products are designed, printed and constructed especially for us. Our inspiration comes from our country's wild coast, the native bush, our stories and passions, and the wairua (spirit) of New Zealand.
Our Focus
Our focus for over 24 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 and souvenirs.

We tell the New Zealand story with our 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 in Auckland City. Arohanui from the Pauanesia team.

Only at Pauanesia

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 of scarves, 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.

Come into town and visit us on High Street; we are opposite Freyberg Square. There is some Pay & Display parking on High Street but we'd suggest Victoria Street carpark for good value and good weekend rates .

Victoria Street (East) Council Carpark has a weekend deal, $2 per hour with a maximum parking charge of $10. Evening rates apply from 6pm. Chancery Carpark across the square for Pauanesia also has a good fixed weekend rate.


For those not able to visit the store, this website features a selection of popular Pauanesia items that we are happy to ship. If you have seen something in Pauanesia and it is not on the website, please email us at or phone us on 064 9 366 7282 and we will assist you.

We are small and special; not a big corporation - so please give us time to make shopping with us a pleasure. Christmas is always frantic and we don’t have huge store rooms, so to avoid disappointment, please give us good notice.

We look forward to seeing you in Pauanesia. We promise you a great shopping experience with lashings of Kiwi wit, style and spirit.
