Brand Story

When I started Luna & Rose, one of my only goals was to be as transparent as possible. Oh, and making sure our pieces were made with the planet first and foremost beautiful jewellery made from recycled silver and everyday linen staples dyed organically from plants. So many companies tout transparency but only offer flashy headlines instead of actual, real-life substance. From the very beginning, I have chosen every part of the Luna & Rose process, from our raw materials to our facilities to our partners, artisans and everyone and everything in between. Come and check us out.

Good Working conditions

We work hands on every day with our small team of Artisan craftsmen and tailors. No factories, no slave labour, no children. This means we know exactly who is making our pieces and under what condition. Almost all of our Artisans work for themselves meaning they too are their own bosses!

Social Justice

You will often find us sipping coffees with our artisans while we chat through samples, delivering them a fresh Nasi Goreng and checking in on them and their latest additions to their families. We are less a 'them & us' production system and more like ONE BIG FAMILY.

Made with certified organic material

We use GOTS certified organic cotton and use organic plant dyes to dye our clothing. All of our plant dyes are safe enough to drink (although bitter tasting!) and have zero waste water as the extra dye juice is used to irrigate the surrounding fruit farms.

Made with sustainable raw material

We use natural fibers that are sustainably grown to make our pieces, ensuring that at the end of their (very long) life, our pieces can return to nature when and if they want. The materials we use for our clothing include organic cotton, 70% hemp / 30% cotton and 100% flax linen.

RecycleNeuMärz

Recycled material

Our sterling silver is all recycled from old electronics and post consumer electronic waste parts. Our solid gold pieces are also made from melted down and refined old jewellery and post consumer waste products. No mining here folks!

Sustainability

LocalNeuMärz10_7

Locally-made

We produce in both New Zealand and Bali, where we have a store and our two head offices. We are passionate about local production and being closely linked to our artisan makers, it's why we exist!

Zero waste design

We produce in small scale production so that we never over produce and promote custom design / made to order for a number of our pieces. If anything is sold out, we can always make it to order with our small artisan team. Our organic plant dyes are completely zero waste with all water being fed into neighbouring farms to irrigate their fruit plantations. Our colour palette is classic, designed to complement all seasons and defy trends, ensuring you can wear our organic dyed pieces for years to come. Jewellery can be melted down and re-molded into new collections.
