About Us

"Quality over quantity" each piece is thoughtfully hand-picked with an emphasis on plastic free, New Zealand made and ethically made natural products.

A few years ago my family began the path to living a more sustainable life; being aware of the impact we create and becoming more mindful of everyday products (what they are made of and who made them.) Going through each room of our house, choosing natural alternatives, decreasing our plastic waste and making more mindful decisions when making a purchase.

And that is how Isla & Olive began, with my driving passion to find natural, plastic free alternatives, simple and beautiful items to help reduce plastic waste. 

Since then I have slowly added other beautiful pieces for everyday living including; homewares, children's/baby clothing, wooden toys + books and New Zealand made ceramics, candles and skincare. 

Isla and Olive is a small New Zealand business; when you make a purchase you are not only supporting my family but all the other small New Zealand and international businesses, makers and artists I stock in my store.
