Natural & Sustainable
Sustainable natural fibres have always been at the heart of Kapeka, well before their wider benefits became globally appreciated.
The merino wool used in Kapeka is carbon negative.
Possums harvested for the fibre blend cause damage to ecology and biodiversity. The use of their fibre in Kapeka blends protects New Zealand’s native forests and the carbon negative benefits they create.
We focus on ethically blending natural, sustainable fibres to craft our garments. We consciously source our fibres from traceable sources that boast quality and sustainable efforts.
Packaging is minimal and manufacturing is local to reduce our impact on Earth.
Natural fibres are technical and smart – providing natural antibacterial, anti- odour, fire-resistant and UV protection properties. Healthy for the wearer, healthy for the environment
