About Us



Opening a shop on their alpaca farm near the beautiful Bay of Islands is the culmination of a long held dream of Steve and Christine Hart – to showcase the stunning photography of Steve and the unique fibre work of Christine. 

Steve specialises in photographing birds and landscapes, and has a wonderful range of photo art – often photographing every day scenes with a unique perspective.

Christine mainly uses alpaca fibre along with her colourful range of hand dyed silk products and occasionally merino, to create one off items using age old techniques with a modern twist. 

Along with their own products, the shop also features other New Zealand artists work including ceramics, soaps, intricate shell pictures, greenstone carvings, flax weaving, Unique hand made hats, garden art and many other excellent products – “the place to go for that special something for that special someone – even to treat yourself!”

Supplies for doing ‘your own thing’ are also stocked – washed and carded alpaca and merino fibres, knitting yarns, knitting patterns, knitting needles, silk threads, kits and quilting supplies are some of the ingredients in the mix!
