 Story of Bonz

The idea for BONZ came in 1986 on a chance visit to an international airport in New Zealand where an American tourist admired a stunning hand-knitted garment worn by Bonnie Rodwell. It became apparent that garments of such exceptional craftsmanship and design were not available for purchase. Yet New Zealand, a country with one of the largest concentration of sheep per capita in the world, has always utilised wool and it has been a cherished material that has allowed many skilled knitters to create wonderful designs to keep the New Zealanders warm and protected in the variable weather. Bonnie wanted to be able to allow access to such a wonderful product for more people, locals and visitors alike, who simply did not have the know-how, the skill or the time to create something like that for themselves.
