Our Story

In March 2013, we had our house repainted. It looked gorgeous! But when the painters packed up and the scaffolding came down, I looked out our kitchen window to our courtyard and thought ‘Oh dear!’. Our ripped and faded barbecue cover (in boring green) looked horribly shabby against our freshly painted weather boards.

And so my mission began. To find a great-looking barbeque cover that would stand the test of time. I searched online. I traipsed around garden stores and barbecue shops. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I thought there must be other proud homeowners who’d love a barbecue cover that wasn’t black, green or grey.

A friend reminded me of the vinyl bags made in Europe from recycled truck tarps. That got me thinking about using discarded billboards. And starting my own business!

Our first Summer (2013/2014) was hectic. At our local playground in Wellington, my family kindly helped me lug about, spread out, scrub down and cut up our first collection of massive billboards (they can weigh up to 60kg each). We now feel really grateful to store and repurpose the billboards at our local Bowling Club.

Once we’ve collected the billboards and cleaned them up, we get creative about which bits will look best where. Then a handful of local, hard-working women work together on the cutting and sewing.

We have so much fun making them that it’s hard to let our favourites go!

We’re really proud of our craft and deeply committed to making a difference to our planet. If you are too, please visit our Gallery and share our story with your friends and family.
