Thank you for supporting Companion as they offer protection through the re-use of discarded or found fabric. Enough already exists. Please purchase thoughtfully with the intention of long-term possession.
Companion hats are carefully created in collaboration with migrants & former refugees, from sustainable textiles. Their simple series of hats emerge from a thoughtful design practice, encouraging acts of care for the self, the environment & the other.
Meaningful employment is a crucial component for integration & contribution. Likewise, creating is a catalyst for connection – a required antidote in the face of increasingly divisive times.
Contemporary design outcomes are explored via collisions of traditions; resulting cohesive forms bringing attention to the beauty in heterogeneous societies. Much made is 100% unique – with marks of artisan’s hands & minds.
Slow Design principles are adhered to, considering environmental & social sustainability.
Although constantly open to new collaborative possibilities locally & internationally, we make the majority of our pieces alongside a small number of migrants here in Aotearoa.
