We have met each of our New Zealand based suppliers individually and know their production process. In some cases, sourcing products from New Zealand isn’t feasible. However, we have been lucky enough to find overseas suppliers who share the same values as us. Find out more about our suppliers below.


The Hawes & Freer brand prides itself on offering an experience full of integrity and expertise. Owner Trevor is a stalwart of the industry and a founding member of Mindful Fashion NZ so it's safe to say that supporting the future and longevity of our domestic fashion and textiles industry is a priority for Hawes & Freer. 

We are constantly working towards improving our chain of supply and the textiles and trims we offer for more environmentally conscious options from  our retail and wholesale customers. In 2020 we introduced a full range of GRS certified recycled fusing / interfacing as well as the supply of GOTS certified organic cottons. We made the move to align with what we want and what our customers want.
