About Native Creative - read about me, us and stuff...
Aly Bennett & Harm Zuidmeer are based in the beautiful geothermal lakes district of Rotorua in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand where they live and play with 2 x children and 2 x spotty dogs (actually the kids are quite spotty too - in a freckly kinda way). They're keen outdoor enthusiasts who relish hurtling around in the forest on their mountain bikes, jumping off rocks into lakes & rivers, and stopping to notice that it's the little things that make the world go around.
Aly sits in the main driving seat of the business (tightly gripping her whip) with Harm assisting on initial design concepts as well as in the workshop with the hands-on aspects of frame making etc.
“We’re very much influenced by the natural setting we live in. We care deeply about the environment and try to tread lightly on this amazing planet earth. The native bird and plant life that inspires our creativity will be seen and heard less if we humans don’t co-exist in harmony”.
We've produced a number of products over the years as you can see from the selection below...
