A community-minded sustainability-focused destination store with a Cafe, Retail store and Open Knitwear Workshop.
Visit our on-site knitwear innovation centre or 'Transparent Factory' as we like to call it and watch us complete each process from design to production, and learn about modern sustainable manufacturing in New Zealand.
See how we've combined modern technology with traditional knitting techniques to make the highest quality knitwear. We carefully design, knit and hand-finish each garment to ensure absolute perfection. We use sustainably sourced natural fibres, so all our garments are naturally renewable. Using natural fibres means at the end of their long, warm and useful lives, our garments will gently biodegrade back into the earth, leaving no trace.
Our retail store is the place to pick out your favourite garments and spend an afternoon shopping our locally made knitwear so you can take a little piece of Waiheke home with you.
The Ahipao cafe and garden bar is the perfect place to hang out after a long day of exploring Waiheke island. Enjoy home-baked pies, cakes and other delicious treats. We create wholesome food to bring from our kitchen to you, food that will nourish and satisfy all your cravings.
Feel the creativity of our whole space and be inspired by the beautiful scenery of Matiatia bay from every angle.
