HAPA

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

We are a design store based in Christchurch, Aotearoa NZ, and our focus is on supporting and promoting local artists and creatives.

As part of maintaining our creative discipline and focus on our core values, we will be photo documenting a different creation each day that showcases the wealth of creative talent in our beautiful city. Each item must be created or designed by a local Canterbury based artist/designer/creator, and available for purchase in one of our HAPA stores.

As our city rebuilds around us its important to continue to value and acknowledge the creatives, the misfits, the dreamers... and the small businesses that showcase them.

We are the cracks in the pavement, the foraged flowers from demolition sites, the opportunities that arise from chaos...and we are beautiful MAURI ORA!

Day 37: Birds of a Feather


Meet one of our busiest makers, Bronwyn from Baby Bird. Bronwyn’s been handcrafting her wares for us for several years now, and they are proven winners! These volcano cushions are her latest creations, utilising recycled woollen blankets and are full of charm and character.

Like many of our makers, Bronwyn is a busy Mum with 3 kids who loves to create and road test items that reflect her world. The nest of Baby Bird is always evolving, so keep watching as new products are coming out all the time! She is an active presence in the local market scene and is open to custom orders too :)
