Daffy & Yarn design and create NZ giftware, promoting the choice-ness that is New Zealand. We are proud to be a Kiwi business, and we’re all about giving back to our beautiful country through supporting our kids – that’s why 50% of our profits go to helping kids in need.

All our products are inspired and designed right here in New Zealand, and we make sure that anyone producing Daffy & Yarn products, here or overseas, are well looked after.

Think of us as your friendly neighbour, your trusty Gran, your fun friend or your adventurous cuzzie-bro. We are a little bit quirky with a touch of Kiwi class.

Whether you’re a proud Kiwi or if you’d love to be one, our products are for you.

We think New Zealand is a ‘sweet as’ country… so when we found out that 1 in 4 Kiwi kids go without the basics such as food, clothing & healthcare we were shocked. That’s why 50% of our profits go to helping Kiwi kids in need.


After their big OE, Paul & Leah Jackson came home to find child poverty in New Zealand at an all-time high. Motivated to help, Leah dedicated 3 years of study to graphic design to learn the skills to run a business that could give back to the community – and particularly to help kiwi kids in need.

“I love to design and create but my biggest drive is to give back to our beautiful country and the future of our nation.”

Along with her husband, Paul Jackson, they have developed a business that will give 50% of its profits to kids who need it most.

Paul & Leah are proud kiwis (even though Paul was born in England), and they wanted to create a business that promotes the choice-ness that is New Zealand – not only through uniquely NZ designs, but also in the way kiwis look out for each other.
