About Us...

Hi and thank you for dropping by...

Welcome to Kawaii Kiwi and our creations.

So, why Kawaii Kiwi, I hear you ask?
Kawaii (pronounced: kah-wa-ee) is the Japanese word, meaning cute! I love everything about Japan: I studied Japanese for 5 years and am now teaching my hubby and kids, I love the food, culture and people...I thought Kawaii Kiwi was a perfect fit for my crafty creations, particularly as initially, I started off with origami as the main focus for my products...many of my range still includes origami and it has grown in different ways also.

We are based in Springfield, Mid-Canterbury, at the foothills of the beautiful Southern Alps. My husband and I made the decision to move out of the big smoke of Christchurch to a smaller, more rural setting...just in time for our oldest daughter to start school. We made the move in 2018 and love our new lifestyle in the country...we're much closer to the mountains for our Winter skiing and the bike tracks are literally on our doorstep.

In between being Mum, skiing and biking, studying and working half-time, gardening and yoga, I have found something at my craft table that has grown in the last year...my passion for creating items that make my customers smile...oh, and it gives me my much needed Mum-time.


 Thank you for stopping by to check out my collections. I am creating new products frequently so be sure to check back to see what's new...

Much love and light
