Gecko Gearz is proud to be one of the longest running stores in the gorgeous seaside town of Kaikoura, New Zealand - where the mountains meet the sea.
We focus on ethical fair trade products with a natural, vibrant, bohemian, yogi, vintage, tribal and hippie feel. Our range is made from nature's finest - cotton, bamboo, rayon, voile, viscose, linen, wool, merino, possum, silk, leather, shell and wood.
Ethical trading and socially responsible choices have been at the forefront of Gecko Gearz' ethos since back in 1999.
Our passionate committment to human rights has shaped how we operate. Skilled artisans, social and economic development, conscious collaborations, safe work places, and thriving prosperous people are important to us.
Founder Penny Betts regularly travels to Nepal, Bali and Thailand to work with our artisan makers and brings you ethically produced fashion, accessories and homeware that are handmade. This in turn supports the people of these countries to earn a fair living wage. New Zealand is a lucky country, by buying fair trade ethical products with us online you are helping to bring financial equality to the rest of the world.
Our long-term goal is to give back 10% of sales to make a difference in Nepal where some of our beautiful products originate from. More recently Gecko Gearz also donated towards the Nepal earthquake recovery.
