CCC AU Black and White

Before you really knew us, we were there.

Established in 1904 by John Lane, Pringle Walker and Alfred Rudkin, three adopted Kiwis, who began producing woollen clothing in the Canterbury province of New Zealand. Such was their love for New Zealand, they named their clothing company after the place they lived, the proud region of Canterbury.

From the very beginning, Canterbury of New Zealand was grounded in Aotearoa’s rich and diverse environment and when the time came to develop a company logo, as a tribute to the land they called home, the founders naturally chose the three kiwis.

Over 120 years, Canterbury’s reputation for making hard-working and hard-wearing garments grew, so much so, when the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps needed tough, reliable gear for their units in the First World War, they made the call to Canterbury. Today, Canterbury of New Zealand continues these same values, and is known for its quality and versatility. Whether it’s for sport, for work, at home, or for anything in between, when those three Cs are pulled on, it’s for the moments that matter.

Canterbury of New Zealand are committed to creating clothing that can withstand as much as you do, putting quality, design, and versatility before anything else.

They respect those who wear their clothing and the environment we all live in too much to do anything less.
