Soeur Design was started over 30 years ago. It was originally owned by 2 sisters, hence the name Soeur (french for sisters).
It started with us having linen shirts made overseas both for male and females. It was a great beginning until linen popularity at that time quietened down and other products were introduced.
Soeur had a shop in Christchurch and agents throughout NZ who sold by way of private functions. We then set up a shop Soeur of Martinborough in Station House. After many years Maria took over the business – the format has not changed apart from adding on line shopping on Facebook and now our own website.
We have a range that covers the 4 seasons in a year. Garments are designed in New Zealand then manufactured in New Zealand, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Art has always featured strongly in our shops and is now becoming popular online. We have many talented artists in NZ and overseas. On an overseas trip Maria met up with an artist that did amazing sculptural works. He has developed Soeur Climbing Men and Soeur Sitting Men .These have been a huge part of our business and it is lovely to have so many men purchasing from us again. Many of our pieces are purchased for family and adult children who live overseas so hence the climbing men go travelling again.
We look forward to meeting you in-store or online.
