Being Unique
Keeping it Local
All our gear is made right here in
Christchurch. This way we keep our
carbon footprint low, monitor quality
carefully and ensure that we remain a
self-sufficient nation.
We like to keep our hearts close to home.
As conscious and caring folk, we know
you understand how important this is.
Plus it just feels right. We like to keep our
hearts close to home.
We keep our designs quirky and
limited edition so they can be truly
original, like you!
Loving Our Land
At Chalkydigits we adore our natural
heritage so helping protect it is a
no-brainer; with your support we have
restored the South Island robin to Chalky
Island and given our endangered kokako
in Kaharoa forest a major boost.
We really want to give back to the
incredible environment that sustains and
inspires us, so...
We want you to feel proud to wear our
gear for years to come and so it’s crucial
that we construct our clothes to the
highest quality standards possible.
we are giving 5% of all
sales from our web and
Chalky Shop sales to
conservation projects in
New Zealand.
We use ethical, traceable and organic
fibres and source material close to home
as much as possible.
Wholesome clothing that’s good for
the soul – and the environment!
Staying Sustainable

We all know and love the benefits
of homegrown merino wool: its
breathability, warmth, softness and
sustainability is legendary. But do you
know about the beauty of tencel?
Produced from wood, tencel has
an eco-friendly production process
and is the strongest cellulose fibre
available. Plus it’s unbelievably soft
and drapes like a dream.
We use certified Zque Merino and merino
blends for their traceability and ethical
credentials because we care about what
we do. We know you do too.

softer the more you wash and wear them
– plus they’re lovingly natural.
With its flattering A-line
silhouette, deep pockets and belt
tie, our Nostalgia Linen Skirt will
give you cool summer comfort in
classy style this season.
