About Us

Welcome to RUSTIC.NZ and thanks for visiting our website!

We'd like to introduce ourselves, we are Blaine & Trudi Barratt, parents of two young boys Alex and Riley, and Ted the photo-bombing cat.

After visiting some beautiful stores during our trip-of-a-lifetime to the southwest of the USA a few years back we fell in love with the rural/western/rustic styles of homeware and furnishing. This inspired a few ideas which bubbled away since then and eventually we decided to take the plunge and bring our ideas to life. 

We have established relationships with suppliers from as far away as South America, Europe, India & Pakistan, across the ditch in Australia and of course with some great New Zealand businesses close to home.

When we started RUSTIC.NZ in May 2020, we lived in Waiuku in the Franklin district south of Auckland. In October 2022, we are moving to the stunning Hawkes Bay district where we look forward to enjoying the sunshine and of course the beautiful produce the area has to offer.

Thanks again for visiting us!
