Who we Are

Here at Poshie and Snitch we are inspired by the innovation of beautiful homewares and accessories by small-scale artisans who create with a cause.

 

From ethical sourcing to sustainability, at the heart of Poshie and Snitch is our belief that mindful business practices should be celebrated. After all, high-quality products should not come at the Earth’s cost. Our aim is to make supporting these businesses more accessible for eco-conscious individuals like yourself.

 

Handpicked on our website are a collection of exquisite boutique homewares and accessories produced by an array of small-scale local New Zealand and international creators who share our mind-set. Embodying our passion for protecting the environment and brightening up the home, we hope you love our featured products as much as we do.

Ethically Sourced

We choose ethically sourced homewares and accessories because we believe ethical sourcing is a crucial part of ensuring and maintaining fairness and a safer, healthier world, for all.

Ethical sourcing means that we find products that are created in a responsible way, to the highest standard of ethical business practice.

We take into account both the social and environmental factors to ensure products, including their raw materials, are obtained, made, and delivered in a way that treats other people, cultures, and the environment fairly and well–causing minimum harm and creating a positive difference along the way. 

These ethical practices make design a force for good – as a way to celebrate social responsibility and help our earth thrive.

Sustainability

There are so many aspects of Sustainability : being fair trade, organic , beautiful, eco-friendly, functional, durable, and also philanthropic.

These are all values we feel strongly about at Poshie and Snitch.

At its core, sustainability is about sustaining a balance for people, cultures, the economy, and the environment. It’s about harmony between people and planet, both now and into the future.

We believe that by working together with artisans and small businesses who produce with social, cultural, economic, and environmental sustainability in mind, and by educating our community about making more sustainable choices, we can profoundly contribute to a more sustainable present and future for all.

Fair Trade

The fair trade products we bring to you are part of a larger system, empowering farmers, workers, and creators around the world.

Fair trade means that safe and decent working conditions, stable prices, and fair, living wages are provided and honoured.

Supporting fair trade improves the quality of lives of workers, helps communities strengthen their businesses and become less vulnerable to poverty, and helps workers plan for a strong and stable future.

Through supporting fair trade we are working to contribute to meaningful opportunities for our artisans and helping the movement towards greater equality sustainability, and positive change.

Hand Made

When you buy handmade, you buy the patient work of the artisans who made your item – their time, their skills, and their careful creativity to make their own perfection.

We source handmade items because we support small businesses and artisans working to create small-scale, unique, ethically crafted products.

We love that there is a greater story behind each handmade product – of culture, the origin of its raw materials, techniques used to make it, and the story of the maker. 

Choosing handmade not only provides valuable, direct income to makers, but it also helps to keep craft alive and preserve important cultural traditions.

We’ve teamed up with CarbonClick, a New Zealand company making it easy for people and businesses to help fight climate change.
