Large Kete - one for everyone.

In times when plastic bags at the checkout in the Supermarket will soon be "out" have a look at some more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives. Yes there are the "green" cloth bags of course but nobody actually tells us how and most importantly where they are made. So here is your chance - as in my native Germany - take your own bag to the shop - hand made of NZ Harakeke!

Just give us a call and we can discuss your preferences! Price Range for these large bags is NZD 120 - NZD 180


PLEASE NOTE!!!! Colour: Most of the photos with colourd pikau and kete are a few years old. We used to be able to dye the flax with a American made textile dye that looked really good and lasted a long time but they changed their ingredietns and now it does not take on Flax anymore. We are now using a New Zealand made Flax Dye that has very bright and "out there" colours but they tend to fade rather quickly - especially in sunlight - so for items that are going to be used outside or hung in a sunny spot in your house please be aware that they may not hold the original colour for very long (in some cases not even 6 months...). In addition the most asked for colors black and red are not really stable  - they are more greenish blue or pink... we can't guarntee a specific shade of colour as a result and prefer all natural items ... As a result we do not guarantee that the colour in your chosen items will stay the way it looks when you purchased it - this is a official disclaimer to that regard..
