Ethically made, right here, by us.


Whole Garment knitting
All our Garments are designed in NZ by Charlotte and made, locally by our wonderful female maker. Covery (our maker) runs her own small manufacturing business in Auckland. By using Whole-Garment Knitting, we are able to remove bulky seams, and only use the amount of yarn necessary for each item.
This means no offcuts ending up in landfill and allows us to produce in an ethical and sustainable way.  


Each Garment is personally designed, made, hand finished and quality checked by Charlotte. Covery is fully certified and shares our values of promoting a happy, respectful and fair working environment for all.

My HQ is situated in a rural area of Gisborne. Where I am surrounded by rolling hills, a bunch of noisy geese and fresh air. The beauty of these surroundings is a constant reminder to look after our natural environment.

I take reducing our eco-footprint seriously which is why I choose to only create NZ made products.

Our Merino is ZQ certified and sourced from partnering farms around NZ. The fibres are sent to Wellington where they are blended and transformed into the yarn I use to knit. I partner with AUT to use their state of the art, zero waste, machines. This allows me to remove bulky seams and to only use the amount of yarn necessary for each item.

This means no offcuts ending up in landfills and allows me to manufacture in an ethical and sustainable way. I carefully select my manufacturers and suppliers to ensure that the entire process is NZ made, with ethical working conditions for all.

Zero Waste

Having worked in the fashion industry for many years I have seen the incredible amounts of waste that are produced in the process from manufacture to retailer. I care deeply about how we produce and believes it is collectively the industry's responsibility to make sustainable and environmentally friendly options available. By only putting sustainable and high-quality items into the market, we can change fast fashion and leave the world better for future generations. I am proud to have an established relationship with Perino who ethically source and produce our yarn as well as AUT where I studied and now manufacture. The 3 step process I use, allows me to have full control over every aspect of the manufacturing process and to make the best choices in terms of sustainability and environmental impact. I strive to create and maintain a short, zero-waste process that supports 100% local.
