Behind Mount Kiwi

We are conscientious creators and adventurers.  We make clothing that’s designed to do good, not just look good.

Close-Knit Community

We are a collective of makers and explorers. We know how important it is to have clothing to seek, play, and be free in.

Fifteen years ago this adventurous spirit led us to Nepal, where we met Rita and her team of passionate craftspeople. Together we make pure NZ wool knitwear to last your life.
Our knitters are true artisans, with a keen eye for creative design and an intimate knowledge of working with 100% wool. Our clothing embodies the modern day trailblazer and allows for the comfort of living.
We’re fortunate enough to be able to share these hand-finished garments with the world, and are proud to have been using fair-trade practices since the get go.

Walking the Talk

We are committed to redefining fair employment globally.
All our employees, based both here and afar, receive fair NZ living wages for their chosen role in the Mount Kiwi family. This translates into strong local support, ongoing education, and employment opportunities within our employees’ communities.

Mount Kiwi is a proud supporter of the New Zealand Himalayan Trust, a non-profit organisation that works to improve education and healthcare for the people of Nepal.
We are constantly searching for ways to take our low-impact philosophy and sustainability practices to the next level.

Say NO to sweatshops

Often times apparel comes with a cost beyond what’s on the price tag.
Make the conscious choice to buy fair-trade and know the garments you love are made with love.

Claudine

With roots sprouting from New Zealand’s agricultural zone, Claudine’s intrepid spirit propelled her forward into the world of wool. There she and her sister Nikki founded Mount Kiwi, and she’s been making fair trade, pure NZ wool clothing for adventurers ever since.
Currently the “Fast Fashion” industry seems to favour big business profits above supplying quality products for consumers. Claudine is a staunch advocate for a return to “Slow Fashion” practices and supports the creation of affordable, hard-wearing clothing that lasts - to deliver the best value over time.

Nikki

Like her sister, Nikki grew up around rural New Zealand farming and New Zealand wool production. She discovered a love for travel, particularly visiting international communities and connecting with people. Soon after Nikki began to imagine a world where the affordable, high-quality wool clothing she grew up with would be part of every home.
Fast forward, and she’s making that dream a reality. As the lead designer and inventory manager at Mount Kiwi, Nikki is delivering quality apparel designed to look great and last season after season.

Rita

Kathmandu born and bred, Rita is not only a long time friend, she’s also Mount Kiwi’s integral right-hand ally in Nepal. With over fifteen years experience in wool clothing production, Rita manages operations with expert knowledge and a perfectionist’s eye.
Working closely with a team of professional knitters and traditional weavers, she oversees product design, manufacturing, detailing and finishing. Thanks to Rita’s dedication to quality, every Mount Kiwi jersey meets our high production standards while remaining unique and lovingly crafted by hand.
