FROM MY HOME TO YOURS
The Hansby Design art collection began from my home in Auckland, New Zealand.
When my kids were little, we visited the local zoo often. I soon realised there was a lot I didn't know about our local birds and animals. So I went on a journey of discovery, learning about the unique species that exist in New Zealand.
At the time, interior trends focused on exotic birds, but I wanted to value our local wildlife, to celebrate them, raise awareness and protect them. So I began drawing these modern images, in a bold, minimal style to suit our contemporary homes and spaces.
But not everyone has space for big art, so I created magnets and keytags as mini art that could travel. The gift market was saturated in plastic at the time, so I began making in wood, to reduce the impact and give you a choice.
I value and care about our planet, and create products that are kind to the environment, offering you alternatives to plastic. I choose low waste packaging and strive to make locally where possible.
- The accessory range is made using FSC wood from sustainable forests, engraved to reduce the need for packaging.
- All art prints are made to order and frames are made in New Zealand.
- Art Spots are printed on canvas, are removable and repositionable, making them reusable. They're also made in NZ and their packaging is recyclable.
- Please reuse or recycle your packaging from Hansby Design products.
The collection is available here online, and in home design stores throughout New Zealand. Thanks for visiting, I hope you find something you love in the collection, enjoy!
