Join The Flock: A Chic Sustainability Boutique

Get Adobe Flash player

Few stores have the ability to meet all of my shopping criteria at the same time. Unique design, ethically made and all from quality materials are hard characteristics to encompass into one shop. The Flock is that shop. It's an invitingly modern boutique with copious amounts of light flooding in to accentuate all of the treasures that are displayed within. 

Owners and operators Emma Smith and Billy Watson are artists and design aficionados who source items that are fair trade or hand made for their customers and offer a chic and sophisticated space to shop. The promotion of responsibility in design is seen in the entire range of their distinct collection.While in-store you can see the natural lines on hand-carved trinkets, smell luxurious soaps and feel the supple leather of a well-designed handbag. In addition to the Found My Animal range, our latest find is this pouch from My Deer Fox made in New Zealand. It features a minimalist design with brass accessories making it a luxury piece that will last a lifetime.
