Natty is the collaborative work of Cat McKay and Fiona Gibb. Besides their beautiful handmade Rimu jewellery range, Natty also design and produce hand-printed textiles, illustrated gift cards and prints. The latest range celebrates Aotearoa, and includes a beautiful selection of tea towels and pillowcases, which are lightly packaged for easy convenience and shipping offshore as a thoughtful gift from home. The team at Natty try to evoke and celebrate the natural environment with their product, rather than impact on it.


MEET Cat and Fiona

How did your business begin?

We are two Wellington based women whose collaboration was born from a shared vision for the ‘dream job’. We met when our boys happened to start primary school in the same class and we bonded over the mutual desire to work for ourselves somewhere close to home using our hoards of vintage material and second hand shop finds.
We began making jewellery from old vintage books, which we sold at a couple of markets. Our products proved to be popular, and from there we started stocking some local shops. Natty is now a full time operation, with our own workshop and several stockists across New Zealand and an online store.

What gets you up in the morning?

Children and coffee

When you're not working you are

Running around after young children while running your own business takes up most of the hours in the day but we are lucky enough to live near the South Wellington coast so free time is often spent at the beach with friends, enjoying the outdoors.
