Welcome to the Made From New Zealand project. On Waitangi Day 2007 we’re launching a new platform for connecting and promoting New Zealand businesses and people. And we’re doing it in a spectacular fashion, by building a 100 metre long Silver Fern on Santa Monica Beach in Los Angeles, California.
Here’s one we prepared earlier:
We’re funding this project through the sale of Made From New Zealand teeshirts designed by Dan Buckley at Huffer and Michelle Dowd at Kerosene. There are 10,517 teeshirts for sale, (that number being the distance between NZ and LA) and each contains a ‘magic thread’ that we have had spun from one of Sir Edmund Hillary’s climbing socks.
The thread represents the DNA of one of the greatest living New Zealanders, and we’re really proud to be sharing that with the world.The companies listed here have all bought Made From New Zealand teeshirts for their staff and customers.
More people are buying the shirts every day, and you should too…Welcome aboard.
And please feel free to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
Come back often!
