We created Bow and Arrow after having our own little Archer in early 2021 and wanted to find something that would be able to grow with our family and also make a difference.
After dinner with friends, we knew we had to create a product that was made in New Zealand and would support the local industry. After lots of research we were able to connect with a local business owner in Napier whose family have been in the merino game since 1928 and we knew this was who we wanted to work with. After a trip to the North Island and a great first meeting we were sold. We immediately knew this was what we wanted and with so many ideas on customising our products, we placed our first order of baby merino.
All our products are "authentically” made in New Zealand meaning we are able to stay true to our mission to leave a better place for our son. To do this we will limit use of plastic through creation of our own product bags, made of cotton and by using as many local businesses as we can to support and grow the New Zealand made industry.
Thanks for your support, Carolyn, Matt and Archer x
