Our Boutiques

Why we love our recycled clothing boutiques

We’re passionate about style and good quality clothing that doesn’t cost the earth. That’s one reason we opened our ‘dressed’ recycled clothing boutiques. The other reason is to raise funds to support our work.

Sustainability is part of our mission. If you’re like most Kiwis you’ll care about the environment and be proud of New Zealand’s clean, green image. We want to make looking after our home, our kaitiakitanga, easy for you and fun too!
Our boutiques stock a wide range of great quality, donated clothes, including casual, workwear formal and designer wear. We’re not bound by the latest fashion trends and have a range of sizes, styles, colours – something for everyone! And if you need a hand, our boutique volunteers can make suggestions or give feedback.

You’ll find great prices too, with each item individually priced, and our popular sale racks are always worth checking out for bargains.

All funds raised from the boutiques go to support our programmes so by shopping at our dressed boutiques, you’ll be:

  • helping local people find work and achieve success

  • helping create a cleaner environment both at home and overseas

  • saving money, or buying more clothes...

  • able to browse a variety of styles and colours 

  • creating your own unique style.
