Our story begins in a far off pristine part of the planet. In New Zealand, the air is pure, the water clear and the pastures lush. Sheep roam freely, raised with care and respect. These animals weather cool winters and hot summers in coats nature designed to endure. Our products are born in this unique place.
We’ve been crafting quality sheepskins for around 50 years. It’s a tradition forged in the rugged plains of New Zealand and honed in our Napier facility. Our craft is executed with passion, honesty and an eye for detail.
We create home furnishings, footwear, personal care and infant products designed to enhance your life with comfort. Soft to touch, they bring wondrous textures from the wilderness to the sanctuary of your home. CLASSIC sheepskins are pure, natural gifts, 100% sourced from and made in pristine New Zealand.
Classic is defined "as a work of art of recognised value" and something ‘judged over time to be of the highest quality’.
These words define our products and our brand.
