Founded in 1975, the Kaiwaka Clothing Company has grown from a saddle manufacturer into the leading supplier of high-performance wet weather products in New Zealand.
The family behind the business, the Stewarts, are from a farming heritage of six generations that spans from Scotland to Nova Scotia so they have first-hand experience with what farmers need. And that comes through in their no-nonsense approach to design and manufacturing: to make clothes that will keep you warm and dry whatever the elements throw at you.
The Stewarts know from their family’s own experience that people need genuinely waterproof clothing, with fully waterproof seams, because they work in harsh conditions for hours on end. This focus on quality and performance has enabled Kaiwaka Clothing to become the largest supplier of quality wet weather garments to the sector in New Zealand.
Kaiwaka Clothing continues to grow, moving its staff into a new purpose-built factory, expanding the range of garments it offers, and moving into other industries where warm, dry functional clothing is at a premium. These include construction, deep-sea fishing, aquaculture and food processing. The company’s values of quality, reliability and practicality have won it a loyal following both at home and now abroad, not only in these commercial markets but also in the recreational sphere.
Based in the rural town of Kaiwaka, the company is committed to manufacturing in New Zealand where it can keep close eye on the quality of workmanship and materials and ensure that its own values of integrity and honesty are maintained, while rewarding your investment with outstanding New Zealand quality and longevity.
