The quintessential and much loved ‘Susies’ canvas picnic bags had their origins in the South Island high country in North Otago packed with outdoor adventures, picnicking on the lake, jet boating and ski trips with family and friends.  

From small beginnings 30 years ago ‘Susies’ has grown into a thriving on-line family business, employing eight sewers in New Zealand.

The trademark ‘Susies’ canvas bottle and picnic bags in plain colours and stripes remain a firm favourite today, with a varied client base of individuals, corporates and tourism operators. The range has expanded over the years to meet demand and includes everything from weekend bags, tote bags and high quality New Zealand wool picnic rugs to dog beds and cushions.

Susie remains at the helm and while the business may have grown, the philosophy remains the same with an emphasis on producing top quality, durable and stylish New Zealand made canvas picnic gear suitable for any outdoor occasion.
