Every Knight of New Zealand garment is individually made, rather than mass produced. We call this "Commercial craft" as opposed to mass production.
Created by nature, these skins, are incredibly soft and lightweight, and therefore are ideal in the making of fine soft leather apparel.
The small size of the pelts means it can take around 25 skins to make a single jacket.
Based in Invercargill in New Zealand's South Island, Knight of New Zealand has a growing reputation for quality handmade lightweight Shearling (Curly lamb) garments. Established markets include USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Asia Pacific Rim. The Company has marketing offices in Melbourne, Dallas and Munich and of course New Zealand.
Creating quality by hand
There is a signed "Craftsman Guarantee" woven label permanently sewn into every garment as a guarantee of individual Craftsmanship. This label is signed by the two people that crafted the garment.
Attention to detail: All buttons and toggles are made from natural products such as Horn and Tagua nut. Buttons are all hand sewn and hand shanked to the garment to prevent loss.
