HAPA is a Design store which began life in 2011 inside a shipping container in Christchurch, New Zealand, as part of the post quake recovery Re:Start Container mall project. In October 2015 we opened a second store in the beautiful industrial heritage Tannery building, a boutique shopping emporium on the banks of the Heathcote River in Woolston.
We like to say we “Love the Extraordinary” and our product range of gifts, art, jewellery and homewares reflects exactly that – at HAPA you will find carefully chosen unique products, mostly handmade and locally produced in New Zealand, as well as a range of HAPA designs. We believe that things that are made well last longer and support and admire quality craftmanship.
HAPA’s aim is to keep surprising and inspiring our customers, and to contribute to our local economy.
We are constantly on the lookout for innovative creations – if you have something interesting to offer, we would love to hear from you!
Thank you for supporting local artists, designers, jewellers and creators 🙂
