Our online marketplace, Foundry Collective, was developed as a movement to bring up artisan culture in New Zealand.
Socially minded, our team works to connect our craftspeople with the rest of the country by giving access to their precious products. Furthermore, our platform not only unites the artisans with their market, but also with each other. We believe that this bond between artisan and artisan; the potter and the painter, enhances the NZ artisan culture.
Foundry Collective cares about the environment. Like our craftspeople, we endorse the use of natural resources and the Kaitiakitanga that defines New Zealand. We aim to harness and reveal not only the talent of our artisans, but also the resources available in our own country.
Through our online marketplace, Foundry Collective purposes to promote our country’s artisan culture in projecting this movement worldwide. Loyal to our values, we promise that our marketplace will retain the kiwi spirit through ensuring the products placed on our website are all NZ made, NZ designed and supporting local businesses. In doing this, we will be showing the world the personality, passion, pain our artisans put into their craft.
He aha te mea nui o te ao.
What is the most important thing in the world?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
It is the people. It is the people. It is the people.
