We have several fair trade suppliers who put ethics and sustainability at the focus of their manufacturing. The majority of our apparel is made by the award winning NZ company, Little Yellow Bird. They manufacture in India using GOTs certified, rain-fed cotton which is traceable right back to the farms that grew the crop. Our clothing shapes, developed with our in-house pattern maker, Nathan Ingram, is unique to Paper Rain.
Our kids t-shirts are sourced from a Kiwi company based in Kolkata, India who help retrain women out of the sex industry. The tees are 100% fair trade and organic cotton.
These honorable Kiwi folk make sure our production teams are well cared for and that profits from every purchase goes towards community services such as sanitation, clean water and education. Our t-shirts are hand-printed in-house at our cherry farm orchard here in Marlborough.
