Canterbury Sheepskin – exhibiting at the Fieldays and Christchurch Baby Expo!
Earlier this month we exhibited at the Christchurch Baby Show. we focused on our hand made lambskin baby booties that come in many colours. We don’t market these on line as there are just too many colour to photograph and small volumes of each colour / size.
Exciting things happening with Canterbury Sheepskin!
The lucky winners have won a pair of colourful Oxford Mini’s each.
We have a new retailer in Wellington!
Cre8tive Works is a new store opened on Oriental Parade. It’s a small “emporium” of gift ideas.
The shop is “compact” as it’s a converted garage, but is an absolute treasure trove for the person looking for that unique gift from someone special.
Over the last few months we’ve also been exhibiting Canterbury Sheepskin at various shows around the country.
First was the Taupo Home and Garden Show in early April.
Then in early May we were at the Wellington Home and Lifestyle Expo.
These shows are an excellent way for people new to Canterbury Sheepskin to experience the warmth, luxury and comfort of our Boots and Slippers. Products can be bought at the shows or from local retailers in the region.

New Retailer of Canterbury Sheepskin at Queenstown Airport
Premium New Zealand have recently opened a new retail store in Queenstown Airport. It’s a beautifully presented store that displays Canterbury Sheepskin boots and slippers exceptionally well to the hundreds of thousands of visitors that pass through Queenstown Airport. Premium New Zealand is the only retailer of Canterbury Sheepskin at Queenstown Airport.

All footwear, apparel and accessories are warranted for one year against defective materials and workmanship. This does not extend to problems that arise from normal wear and tear. Slight dye transfer may occur with darker coloured sheepskin during the first few years. Lighter coloured sheepskin may pick up inks from clothing with which it has come in contact. This discolourisation is not covered under the manufacturer’s limited warranty.
Because sheepskin is a natural product, there may be some irregularities and variations in colour and texture. These traits are characteristic of fine sheepskin and add to the beauty and character of the footwear and apparel. These characteristics may cause variations in the fit and wear of some sheepskin products. These irregularities and variations are not covered under the manufacturer’s limited warranty.
