A wolf in sheep’s clothing 

- 18 August 2021 - 


Located in Hunterville in the North Island, Papanui Estate is the home to the Hurley family, the third generation of farmers on the estate.

With a thriving beef and sheep farm, and their wool previously snaffled by esteemed carpet companies, Sophie and Sam had more ideas for nature’s wonder-product and so Honest Wolf was born.

Honest Wolf offers a range of luggage and accessories which are all made from their wool and locally sourced NZ leather. Sustainably sourced, azo- free dyes, biodegradable and renewable and all grown or farmed in NZ, these Kiwis offer a responsible shopping experience with an ethical purchase.

The range spans uber cool cap’s for adults and kids, wallets and device sleeves, casual shopper bags and fashionable totes. But our favourite is ‘The Weekender’ – this custom lined bag is approved as carry on luggage size and has compartments for everything you need to take for a getaway weekend! Luxe details like strong brass buckles, easy grip and strong zips plus an external shoe pocket makes this the must-have item!

Personalised embroidery can be added, making this the perfect gift for anyone especially those who are hard to buy for. Check out their website and support local, make an ethical purchase that’s from the land and can return back to the land.
