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 38: Fabrics and Fancies

How cute are these bibs! They are handmade by one of our favourite makers, the gorgeous Jen from Eversweet. Jen is ALL about handcrafting cool, quality baby stuff that you just can’t live without.

Im a huge fan of her ever changing range of fabric options, I swear this woman doesnt sleep because theres a constantly changing range of new fabrics available! Every time she drops off a new delivery I cant wait to open it to look at the latest addition to her range. Her bears and sloths are my current obsessions!

Jen says her 3 small children are her inspiration and the stem of her desire for quality handmade items – every item is made at her home here in Christchurch. By supporting makers like Jen, you are supporting handmade quality items, parents who juggle work and babies at home, and small business - and thats such an important part of the fabric of life!
