Pukeko - Pukeko are at home in wetlands, but have adapted well to modifies landscapes and are often seen foraging on the side of the roads and paddocks.  They have deep blue plumage, white feathers under tail, a red bill and are known for their lovely long red legs.  Pukeko are also found in other countries, around the Pacific, unlike their stockier, flightless, endangered cousin the takahe.

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.

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.
