A little about us

The Wallace & Gibbs Group is a family owned business, based in Arrowtown, New Zealand. Bruce Gibbs and Delvine Wallace set up their first store 'The Woolpress' 26 years ago selling sheepskins, and NZ printed tees to a predominantly American tourist market. In 2017 the original store still operates now stocking a huge range of Icebreaker, Possum Down, Ugg and Sorel Boots as well as premium sheepskins and woolen goods to tourists from all over the world - China Japan, Australia, America and right across Europe.

The Wallace and Gibbs group opened their namesake store 20 years ago to service the growing local population offering high-end stylish pieces from New Zealand's top designers as well as the best fashion makers from Europe.

Wallace and Gibbs take pride in the pieces selected for the store - each and every one is hand picked from the latest designer collections - including Trelise Cooper, Obi, Ben Sherman, Elm, Isaac and Lulu, Ketz-Ke, Paige, Paula Ryan, Pol, Standard Issue, Ricochet and Visage.

You'll also find a range of attractive accessories including handbags from Saben and eyewear from Le Specs and Seafolly. Well known shoe designers include Kathryn Wilson, Chaos and Harmony, No Brand and Maya McQueen and hit new comers like Rollie line the shelves.
