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.

Kōkako: With long legs, dusty grey complexion, black face mask and shiny blue wattles the Kōkako hop and glide through the forest. Their beautiful and unique song cannot be mistaken for any other bird. Kōkako numbers were less than 400 breeding pairs in the 1990s, but with an extensive recovery plan, are now up around 1600 breeding pairs and rising.

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.
