I fell in love with Pauanesia's products before I even visited the store - a Kiwi b&b owner in the UK had so many of their cute fabric kiwis in his b&b that I decided I would buy at least one before even arriving in NZ! I bought a medium kiwi for myself and 7 beanie kiwis for my friends and family. The shop is very well stocked (I always had to restrain myself from spending my entire paycheck there) and the staff are helpful and very patient as I spent ages there agonising over which kiwis to choose!
I have recently placed an order online/via the phone as well and have been very impressed both by the speed of the delivery and by the helpfulness of the staff, who after I phoned them immediately sent me a picture of the beanie kiwis they had available so I could choose one to order online.
It is such a pleasure to shop here and support a store that stocks unique, genuine NZ-made products! Please please please start offering overseas shipping!!

Popped into Pauanesia after NZFF for something toasty for my winter outfit. Gorgeous merino possum scarves & gloves/mittens...nearly got tempted with their new & beautiful range of pounamu especially the ones on finely plaited drops.
Look out for the colourful kiwis in the Pauanesia window.

I travel overseas frequently and find that aside from Whittakers Chocolate, the best gifts are the Beanie Kiwis from Pauanesia. Absolutely unique and a fantastic souvenir / gift from New Zealand - highly recommended.

Such a hot sunny summer. I've lived in my bathing suit + a selection of beautiful cool drifty sarongs from Pauanesia. Loving the designs and soft wrap fabrics. Value for $$

You will find not so cheap souvenirs from NZ here, colourful selections from jewellery to fashion awaits, if you find the shop (since it is missing on the opensourcemaps!), go have a look!

I love this shop and often go here to pick up unique gifts for friends and family overseas. It's a tiny shop but stocks a range from jewellery to tea towels and kiwi soft toys. Many of the items feature Pacific inspired patterns. Don't expect cheap but you will find unique gifts that are very New Zealand.

We read about this shop on Trip Advisor and decided to check it out because we were looking for unique, artisan gifts to give family from our trip to New Zealand. Pauanesia is such a cute shop filled with beautiful, colorful designs on many different items. We love the bird tea towels, pillow cover, and little kiwi doll! They even beautifully giftwrapped some of our purchases for gifts. We are happy to see they have a website if we ever want to buy more. You should definitely visit this lovely shop when in Auckland!
