The KINA Collection is handcrafted in New Zealand, a country that has a lot of sheep. Tens of millions of sheep actually. No where else in the world do sheep grow such fantastic wool. Lots of sheep means lots of lambs. Very cute in the spring to see them all bounding through the fields. Lots of lamby frolicking for sure. But sometimes they die. Maybe there are triplets and the small one does not make it. Maybe a sudden cold snap or unseasonal snow storm gets the vulnerable new born. Ahh... the tragedy. So. KINA is born. Made from these lambskins that have passed of natural causes.
