Classical, Sustainable, Beautiful
Our Story

Created in New Zealand using only natural fibres, at Benmore we believe in creating heirloom garments made to last. Our designs are inspired by traditional knitwear, incorporating a classical colour palette. The result, a timeless collection that will be loved and passed onto future generations. Wool is such a wonderful, sustainable resource which is undervalued today. As a brand partner of The Campaign for Wool we are committed to celebrating this fibre and delivering a truly special range that will be a staple in every little person’s wardrobe.

Buy it once and love it forever
Celebrating Wool

With knitting becoming a dying art and the overwhelming growth of fast fashion brands using cheaper textiles, finding good quality knitwear is becoming harder. This inspired us to create something special for the next generation and so Benmore was born.

Benmore is a family run business based in Tai Tapu, New Zealand. We are a husband and wife team, Leighton and Tamsin with two little girls Rosa and Florence and two pet sheep Bertie and Betty! The brainchild of Leighton, we established Benmore in 2019 when we were expecting our eldest Rosa – our very first sample cable knit cardigan arrived with us in the post on the morning she was born as we were on our way to the hospital!

We hope you will find something to treasure here. Buy it once and love it forever.
