We connect you with beautiful, minimalist, quality handcrafted products that support women who are building better lives for themselves. Our aim is to open up a world of socially conscious and ethical choices for the modern Kiwi women.
Because we care, because we are Reca.
When I was a little girl growing up in Myanmar, there was (and still is) a strong stereotype of how a woman should portray herself. Despite this, I was influenced by many strong women in my life, especially my mother and aunty. She always taught me to be independent, and to stick up for myself.
One of the first memories I have after arriving in New Zealand is being inspired. It was amazing to be in a country with so many opportunities for women. Seeing women succeed still inspires me to this day, and I want other women to feel as empowered as I have.
This is the core of Reca. We give back and support independent businesses that pay fair wages to women who have not had the same opportunities as we have. Something as small as a pair of earrings can mean financial independence for the artisans we source our products from.
Every part of the Reca journey has been carefully thought through. Each handcrafted item chosen with care. We feel strongly about the slow fashion movement and giving women the same opportunities regardless of their background.
At Reca we take pride in choosing ethical and environmentally friendly packaging for all our products. Ensuring that our boxes are 100% recyclable is something we feel very strongly about. Where we can, we use New Zealand based manufacturers. We see our packaging as a constantly developing process and we are always looking at ways to improve it.
Making it better for the planet and for you.
