Our social enterprise is dedicated to creating clothing that carries a strong message. We say NOPE to things that we feel need to change. We share sales profits with organisations which have a positive social impact on issues we feel strongly about. Every garment sold gives a donation to a cause we have a personal connection with. We focus on creating ethically and sustainably made garments that really mean something to you. NOPE means NO. We invite you to join a movement of wearers who become walking billboards for important messages.
Time to say ‘NOPE’ to trashing Mother Earth. She’s the only planet we’ve got, and we have to get serious about reducing, reusing, recycling and repairing. All Mother Earth designs donate to Sustainable Coastlines to clean up Aotearoa’s water; plant trees, and teach us all how to be better humans in caring for Papatuanuku.
Demand sexual consent. Your body your choice. NOPE means NO whatever you wear. NOPE products raise money for Sexual Abuse HELP Foundation, who cope with the avalanche of sexual abuse victims needing support, counselling and legal advice. Let’s keep the conversation going to put an end to sexual abuse, harassment and violence. Your body - your choice.

Any Size Tee

The ANY SIZE tee wants you to celebrate your body - no matter what SIZE. Profits are shared with EDANZ - an Eating Disorder support group helping families of loved ones who suffer from disordered eating. This design was created to collaborate with 'DISORDER' a new documentary short film, created by Auckland's 2113 Creatives. Your body size doesn't define YOU, so we now remove SIZE LABELS from these tees. We offer the largest size range possible (size 8 - 24 or 5XL) so you can all be proud to wear this tee.
Sexual consent is everything, and we believe strongly that relevant and purposeful consent education would reduce the incidence of sexual harassment, assault, violence and rape.

We're bloody keen to break down taboos about periods.
Period poverty has been preventing students from attending class, and we believe the high cost of menstrual products needs some solutions. Everyone should have access to affordable and sustainable menstrual products - period.! That's why we subsidise the purchase of menstrual cups for menstruators in need. Every short or long sleeve tee sold gives koha to Wa Collective who provide cups for just $15 through Students Associations at Universities across New Zealand, and donate free cups to Women’s Health Collectives.
Wear our 100% organic cotton tees boldly embroidered with red stitching to start a conversation about the natural process of menstruation.
MEWE TOO Tee
This tee has been created in response to requests from our fans. We all know someone who's a victim, or we can reflect on our own experiences of sexual harassment, assault or violence. “MeToo must become WE TOO.” Jacinda Ardern Prime Minister NZ, UN General Assembly 2018.
The movement began ten years ago by Tarana Burke - long before the hastags - and its current resurgence and strength lies in the power of solidarity. Wear our new embroidered logo 100% organic cotton tee (me & we in mirror image) just above your heart to say that we stand together for a world free from sexual violence. Have those courageous conversations.
EVERY tee sold will proudly share profits with two amazing charity organisations who we know do great work in this area: Sexual Abuse Prevention Network - offering education programmes in school and business communities to teach sexual violence prevention strategies, and Sexual Abuse HELP - who support, counsel and advocate for any victims of sexual abuse.
