Children adore these t-shirts from Tumbleweed with iconic New Zealand images on them. The designs are hand-printed in Wellington and then the ink has been heat cured to to ensure durability. The t-shirts are made from high quality, pre-shrunk, 180 GSM pure cotton.  Please contact us if we do not have the size you need, we will be able to order it in for you.

Falcon: The New Zealand falcon or kārearea is New Zealand's only endemic falcon and the only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand.   Adapted to hunt within the dense New Zealand forests they are also found in more open habitats such as tussocklands and roughly grazed hill country. More recently they have been discovered breeding in exotic pine plantations. Laying their eggs in simple scrapes they can nest in a variety of locations, from within the epiphytes that grow in large trees, to on the ground under small rocky outcrops. Where they nest on the ground they are well known for attacking intruders, including humans, with aggressive dive-bombing strikes to the head.

Wellington-based duo Kimberly and James have turned their background in biology and “bird nerd” obsession into a t-shirt business.  All of the design and print work is done in-house in Days Bay, New Zealand - from rough sketches through to finished art work, transferring the art to silk screens and printing. They screen-print all products by hand, using low environmental impact water-based inks. Their t-shirts are designed in New Zealand, and made in either China or Bangladesh. The production facilities are all W.R.A.P (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified, ensuring a sweat-shop free product and ethical work conditions.
