Napier woollen mills

Made in New Zealand is like Made in USA. You just don't see it around that much anymore. As manufacturing has simply upped sticks and moved offshore ( ie: China, or increasingly, anywhere with an absence of human rights like Honduras, or Philipines or Mexico) homegrown labels like this are a rarity. I mean..woollen mills in Napier !?? Hello, I love it. I, for one would totally support my clothes put together in sunny Napier.

You make an excellent point! That label is also nostalgic.
