This local organic underwear label is helping the refugee community from the bottom up. Nisa is a socially-minded underwear label that employs women from refugee backgrounds to make their underwear. Made used certified organic cotton, Nisa’s products are soft and come in a variety of colours and styles for both men and women.

Nisa has a flagship store and studio on Willis Street which customers can check out the range of bras, undies, t-shirt, singlets and socks and watch as they are lovingly produced.

One of Cuba Quarter's most beloved thrift stores, Recycle Boutique sells pre-loved designer garments for a fraction of the original retail price. Head here to stock up on clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and more, often by local or international labels.

It's the perfect place to spend a couple of hours digging through the racks for your perfect piece. With hundreds of stylish Wellingtonians selling their clothes through the store, they only accept good quality items and prefer boutique labels over fast fashion, so you're likely to find a gem (or five) every time you visit.
