Combining responsibly sourced New Zealand Wild Rabbit Eco-Fur with beautiful textiles from around the globe, Lapin specialises in the production of bespoke, one-of-a-kind and limited-edition coats/jackets, accessories and soft furnishings.

A fresh offering in the world of fur fashion and decor, each handcrafted piece is a harmonious fusion of inspiring fabrics with a pest resource direct from the South Island’s mountainous high country.


From a  beautiful land of extremes comes the motivation to transform an environmental pest into a conscious choice for those wishing for the warmth and luxury of fur. 

Lapin speaks to a love of couture, the creation of family heirlooms and the presentation of NZ Wild Rabbit Eco-Fur as a practical luxury eco-product. 

Lapin's bespoke service encompasses in person and/or long-distance collaborations.  The process involves sketches, swatches and made-to-measure toiles to customer satisfaction before commencing making.  

The intention is to share an authentic collaboration in the making of a beautiful, tailor-made, slow-fashion garment. 

Designer/maker Jane Avery has had the privilege of being apprenticed by Max Wilson, former Master Furrier at Dunedin's Mooneys Furs. Now retired, Max’s mentorship and discerning eye at Lapin continues.
