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 40: Its a Wrap!

This is such an item of beauty and practicality - its the NZ Nature edition of the latest Wrapping Paper Book from local designer The Kiss Co. Its a stunning love poem to Aotearoa! Inside this edition you'll find 10 large sheets of wrapping paper by 10 NZ Artists, each very different in their execution, but all very Kiwi in their own way.

The NZ Nature Edition has been created in collaboration with well known NZ designers and illustrators, and the prints are so gorgeous you can literally tear them out and frame them, as well as of course, giftwrap with them…or - line the wall of a dolls house! Or…cover an old box or table! So many ways to utilise its beauty :)
