About us

With memories of foraging for raspberries and gardens full of flowers and vegetables, we remember a more carefree world. We look back to our childhoods and a time when there wasn't so much 'stuff' and less was thrown away. Garden tools lasted forever. It is with these thoughts True Purple Peas has been established. Having spent many years renovating our 1920's bungalow in a town on the Kaipara River we have found a shared passion for both traditional and contemporary design in our home. We consciously select quality, sustainable garden tools & products for the home that are beautifully designed and whose backgrounds we know and value. We hope they bring joy but do not diminish over time.

Garden Tools & Homewares

At True Purple Peas, we stock high-quality durable garden tools. If looked after carefully your tools will be long-lasting. We have chosen brands such as  Sneeboer & Zn, ARS Corporation, and Barebones for both their quality and honesty. 

In our range of homeware, we are extremely excited to be supporting small businesses in New Zealand. We have products such as sunhats from Companion produced with slow design principles, candles from Raglan Candles, soap and ceramics from Studio Star & beeswax wrap from Wrap It Up Bee Wrap. 

We have carefully chosen our books with a focus on gardening, growing, well-being and sustainability.
