OUR COMPANY
We are a small, family-run business who have been carving greenstone for three generations. Craft is at the heart of everything we do, from the selection of the raw stone through to the final finishing touches. From humble beginnings, we’ve grown to be recognised leaders in the art of carving jade with stores in Rotorua, Hokitika and Auckland Airport. We’re deeply connected to the jade that we use and love spending time in the workshop carving life into stone.
