Behind Standard Make



Our Why 

At Standard Make, we celebrate making things by hand.

Our mission is to slow down the repetitive nature of fast fashion by creating work that is unique, one-off and handmade. We champion the artist’s hand through playful imagination and exploration of the world around us. 

Creativity is at the core of SM and we approach every design with authenticity at the forefront of our minds. 

Standard Make serves as a reminder for us all to march to the beat of our own drum.


Make your own Standards.

Be a Standard Maker.



Meet the Makers                                                           

We are 24-year-old twin sisters from Aotearoa New Zealand, who like to dabble in anything creative. We are Māori/ Cook Island Māori and are born and raised in Tāmaki Makaurau. We love to experiment with new ideas, walk our two little dogs (Manu & Kai) and cook good food!                                           
From ideation to delivery, everything is done by us. We make sure that all of our pieces are handled and packaged perfectly.                                                                                      
We hope that our work brings you as much joy & excitement as it brings us.
