A Little About Us...

We started making mecates out of a desire to find a New Zealand made mecate, using sheep wool.

The wool that we grow here is renowned as being the best in the world.

In the old tradition of using what is around you, we gathered up supplies and set to work. We have spent a long time improving our product and perfecting the art of making a truly balanced mecate that is very firm to hold, yet has pre-signal for the horse. 

We constantly seek for perfection in the making of every item.

We love colours and love to mix them together in a manner that has not been done before. 

We pride ourselves with using the best sheep wool in the world. Our wool is commercially prepared by leading exporters of woollen carpets. 
Please enjoy looking at all the designs we have here on this page.
