McDonald Textiles


On 2,800 hectares of family farmland in New Zealand’s South Island lies one of the country’s most remotely beautiful spots, renowned for its picturesque rolling hills, rugged merino-rearing hill country, and vine-clad river plains. This magical place is woven into the McDonald story- one of inimitable quality, and love for the land. When you take a McDonald piece home, you are taking home a piece of New Zealand- authentic and made with care and heart.  Made with only the finest natural fibres, a McDonald garment captures the essence of luxury New Zealand to gift yourself or a loved one.


We stand for uncompromising quality. The finest materials are carefully sourced from the fields of New Zealand - merino wool and possum fur - and combined with Mulberry silk to yield an exclusive yarn that’s lighter, stronger, warmer and more luxurious than merino or cashmere alone.

Then, through the most exacting of processes and the utmost attention to detail, we transform this yarn into fashion. However, we don’t cater to the whims of fashion: rather, we make exquisite, enduring and elegant garments that surpass fashion trends and stand the test of time.

We also stand for sustainability. We use possum merino, not only because it’s incredibly warm and gloriously soft, but also because the possum is an introduced pest that destroys New Zealand’s native forests and rare birdlife.

The greater McDonald team works at our purpose-built factory in Auckland. Our expert craftspeople are the best in their field, combining years of experience with a fierce passion for their craft.
