We want to eliminate every last bit of fabric waste possible. Quality fabrics are expensive, we have always planned to make to meet demand with nothing extra and we do not want to add to the landfill. Where there are gaps in the pattern layout our designer thinks creatively and makes pattern pieces for items that use the gaps. Our merino Pico hat and hand warmers are two of these creations using merino.

Earth Sea Sky was formed in December 1990 when David teamed up with clothing designer, Sydney Mulligan. Between them they had more than 25 years experience in New Zealand’s outdoor clothing industry. This experience in design, production and sales was used to fill a growing need in the market for outdoor clothing that combined comfort, style and performance. David and Sydney introduced designs and colours that linked function and performance with great fit, attention to detail and fashion. Their first range of 20 garments included tramping jackets, oilskins, waterproof ski wear, 60/40 anorak windshells and Polartec thermal fleeces.
Since then, most of New Zealand’s outdoor clothing brands have taken their production offshore. Earth Sea Sky is committed to remaining New Zealand made. The Ellis family believes this is vital in maintaining the brand’s consistent quality and uniqueness.
