Parisian was founded in 1919. For four generations they have stayed true to their niche, making neckwear, leather belts and complementary accessories in New Zealand.
Their story begins on a train journey across America, a voyage in search for a new idea. Their founder met a gentleman who showed him how the modern tie was made. A sketch on a napkin was tucked into his pocket and travelled with him back home to New Zealand. From this pattern, his eldest daughter Ruby sewed the first tie.
As the company has passed down through four generations of family custody, so has the spirit of exploration and values of craft, quality and care.
Today they continue to comb the globe for the finest materials, bringing them home to their workroom on the edge of Myers Park in the heart of the city. Here they apply their traditional expertise, transforming them into unique collection pieces.
