Established in September 2006, Toggle is New Zealand's leading independent online gallery for designers, crafts and handmade gifts. Toggle represents around 150 NZ Designers, a group that grows weekly. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive range of art, craft and design which is unique, interesting and eclectic, making it easy for you to find the right gift (or to buy something great for yourself!).
Designed by Kiwi's & Proud of it!
Every item on Toggle.co.nz is designed by Kiwis, and that's our promise! The majority of our designers continue to create there product here, with the odd couple supporting ethical business enterprise overseas.
Toggle is Freight Free!
The price you see, is the price you pay... nothing to be added! When you purchase through Toggle, we manage the entire transaction and the designer will ship your items directly to you. Items are packed to the exacting standards of Toggle. As such, all prices on Toggle are including freight within New Zealand. If you wish to have a product shipped overseas, then get in touch and we will arrange this with you directly.
How do I know you are the best value?
Purchasing through Toggle is akin to purchasing direct from the Designer. The Designer sets the price, not Toggle. Toggle is an online only Gallery, so our fees are much lower than regular galleries and our designers make every effort to ensure prices are kept as low as possible. Highstreet galleries would tend to charge 3x the commission.
Many of the items on Toggle are "one off" items that you will not find for sale elsewhere. In the very unlikely event that you do happen to find the same product for sale cheaper elsewhere, then get in touch, and we'll try our very best to match this price for you.
Please remember that all items on Toggle include freight, so what may initially appear slightly dearer, often works out to be cheaper as an overall cost to yourself.
I saw this amazing product...
Seen something cute, audacious or funky that you can't find on Toggle? Tell us about it, we'll research it, and if we love it and the designer loves us, then we'll put in the gallery! You may even get a freebie for finding the product in the first place...
Sourcing of raw materials...
Our designers all reside in God's Own and make every attempt to source their base materials from sustainable New Zealand sources. In the odd occassion when a designer has to use a base material from an international source (i.e. a blank t-shirt for their designs) they research their suppliers to ensure the product is as "clean" and "green" as possible. Toggle will not advocate any materials associated with child labour or those that are that take advantage of poverty.
What is the relationship with NooZealand.co.nz?
We also operate a main-stream gift store at <a href="http://www.noozealand.co.nz">www.noozealand.co.nz</a>. NooZealand is dedicated to more mainstream Kiwiana, and great funky gifts for Kiwis. Where NooZealand differs mostly is that it operates more as a "shop" than a "representative gallery" and all products are held and distributed by the company. The same standards of customer service, great value and social interaction apply.
