  • Do you have a physical store?

  • Where does the recycled material come from?
    Although we wish to use only local waste, New Zealand lacks the infrastructure to process the materials from waste to filament. We are currently in development with local recyclers & filament manufactures to bring purely NZ sourced recycled waste and create 100% NZ Made beautiful objects. r-PETG The r-PETG filament we use is derived from a consistent stream of thermoformed, medical tray waste that are recycled in Flevoland with our suppliers partnering recycler before arriving at their facility in North Amsterdam where extrusion takes place. r-PLA The r-PLA is sourced from a consistent stream of recycled food packaging waste used in fruit boxes, straws and containers. It is collected, sorted and pre processed by a leading recycler in the Benelux region.
  • Can I custom-order a coloured basket?
    Yes! If we have your preferred colour in stock, we can print it in 2-5 days. If the colour is not in stock, we will look at ordering more material and confirm how long this may take (likely a few weeks - month). Please get in touch if you are interested and we can let you know if it’s possible. Colour Options: Overseas Filament: r-PLA (matte) - Terracotta, Ochre, Cobalt, Eggshell, Blossom, Sage, Black, White r-PETG (translucent) - Dark Emerald, Burnt Amber, Sun Glow NZ made filament: r-PLA (glossy) - Black, White, Transparent r-PETG - Black, White
  • How do I make a custom order?
    Simple, just reach out! Please email all enquiries for custom-made orders to First, you can tell us about your idea and we will give you an estimated quote. If you go ahead, we will require a 50% deposit before beginning the CAD (computer aided design) modelling. Once we have created the design, we will send through a photo-real render of the design for your approval. Depending on the design, we can make small tweaks before printing the final product. Once the final design is printed, we will require the balance and deliver your stunning design for you to enjoy. If we are recreating an existing design but in a different colour, we will jump straight into manufacturing the piece once we receive payment. Depending on your ideas and budget, we can come up with designs and the final product relatively quickly. Please allow 2-4 weeks for the design process and manufacture.
  • What is the largest sized planter we can make?
    Currently, we only have small scale 3D printers with a maximum printing volume of 220mm x 220mm x 270mm high, so we can custom make one to fill the entire bed plate if you wish. We aim to purchase a large scale 3D printer in the next year to produce lighting, furniture and other larger scale items.
