Chris and Kaye from Fibreactive Creatures make indigenous creatures from harakeke (NZ flax) We live in an old Bedford bus and use the flax we find along the way. Inspiration comes from the many creatures we see on our travels.
By far the most popular creature is the kiwi, which comes in three sizes: tiny (about the size of a golfball), small (tennis ball) and large. They are bought mainly by travelers wanting an authentic reminder of their visit to NZ, or New Zealanders traveling overseas, to give as gifts. They have been taken to 22 countries that we know of; only Australia requires them to be declared as 'treated fibre'.
Also in the range are weta, spiders, moa and pied stilts. These are truely unique pieces of NZ Art, 100% kiwi made. Each is individually made, so no two are the same.
Fibreactive Creatures offer a replacement guarantee. All creatures are of very high quality and are practically indestructible, so travelers are able to carry most products in their backpacks without fear of damage.
Fibreactive Creatures are ideal for gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person. Everyone loves them. We have many return customers who are building a collection of creatures for display in their own homes. The Prince of Holland took several home with him when he visited NZ. These are truely unique pieces of NZ art, making them ideal gifts or souvenirs . You can find them in the galleries listed on our website, or contact us directly. You will be delighted with your new purchase.
This year's favourite product is a boxed tiny kiwi, designed to be hung as a Christmas decoration. Not into Xmas? They look just as good hanging from your bag, or cellphone.
LATEST CREATURE: an exquisite pied stilt - see it on our website. This will be a favourite.
