  • We ship our orders around NZ, Australia and internationally with NZ Post, Courier Post & PBT.
Our internationally made products
  • Our Wide Brim Fedoras and Turkish Towels are designed here in New Zealand then I personally work one on one with our ethical Chinese suppliers to design products that are uniquely ours.
  • We use sea freight whenever possible to ship our products from China to New Zealand. Although this can take, on average, 5 weeks longer I believe it is a more sustainable and environmentally friendly freight option.
  • Once our products arrive in New Zealand and have been inspected by NZ customs they are delivered to me in Papamoa where I personally inspect them again.
  • Every order is hand picked and packed by me.
  • We ship our orders around NZ, Australia and internationally with NZ Post, Courier Post & PBT.
    Our people
    • MATB is currently a one woman operation. I rope my hubby Simon, my two boys Charlie & Grayson and the rest of my family in every now and then but for the most part all the day to day running of things is done by me, Tans.
    • The incredibly skilled people who manufacture my products work in safe, supportive and healthy environments. They are paid fairly and work reasonable hours and many of them have families of their own who they can comfortably support.
    • I work with a number of great local businesses here in New Zealand from shipping agents to print partners, box manufacturers and event companies who I will be forever grateful to for believing in my mission as much as I do!
