ABOUT US

Who are Tiffanies Treasures?

Tiffanies Treasures Ltd is a privately owned business, its owners being Pawan and Sunita Kalsi. The business in its present form has been operational since 1993 originally being founded by Jane and Andrew Dunlop. The current owners took over the management of the business in 2016.

Since its formation in 1993 the business had grown and developed to the stage where it is believed to be the largest supplier of patchwork fabrics and allied products in the country. Fabrics, naturally make up the bulk of products sold but along with this it carries battings, a variety of notions, patterns, quilting tools and a number of allied products. It also has manufactured for it a reasonably large range of New Zealand themed fabrics both in cotton and batiks. These latter fabrics are extremely popular with the tourist market.

It is the company’s philosophy to be fully committed to the patchwork and quilting industry and it is continually looking to expand its product range in this area.

Our primary focus is on the quilting and stitching market as well as fabric remanufactures. We supply approximately 135 customers throughout New Zealand, including retail textile, fabric and craft stores, long arm quilters and a few small hand craft manufacturers who make and distribute a range of household and fashion items. We do not have a retail outlet of our own but choose to support the many retail and manufacturing businesses in New Zealand

Tiffanies Treasures is a very efficient organisation which enjoys a very good reputation in the market place and is considered to be a reliable, honest and an innovative company. 


New Zealand - What & Where is it

New Zealand is a small country, consisting of two main islands, the North & the South. Geographically it is south east of Australia, which is nearest significant neighbour about 1200 miles (1900km) away - 3hrs flying time & 6hrs to Antartica. The country has a population of 4.5 million contained in a land mass approximately the same size as California. 

As a country it has one of the highest ratio of people involved in the “Do it yourself” market throughout the Western world on a per capita basis.


Staff and Premises:

Tiffanies has representation throughout the whole country in both islands. It has two representatives in the North Island and one in the South Island and this is indicative of the population spread in the country. All customers are visited on a 4-6 week cycle.

The business of Tiffanies Treasures is housed in modern functional warehouse in the major industrial area of the North Shore of Auckland and has been for the past 12 years.

Other than Pawan and Sunita there are two support staff in the warehouse and Barbara, our office manager who has been with Tiffanies for 15 years.


Growth:

As with any business growth is essential for survival and Tiffanies since its existence has been able to continue to grow. It is mindful of the need to expand the business not only in general lines it carries, but also to look for new ideas and trends which evolve.
