Don't be fooled by the unassuming style - this scarf is entrenched with luxury.
In cahoots with the team at Manawatu Knitting Mills, Opus Fresh is proud to present the newest addition to the accessories range - The Classic Scarf.
Crafted from a blend of Possum Fur and New Zealand Merino Wool and detailed with the signature Opus Fresh Mountain Geometric Leather patch; The Opus Classic is 100% New Zealand made and the fibres used are drawn from around our beautiful country.
The unique blend of possum fur and merino lamb’s wool creates a piling retardant fibre. Possum fur is low-pill and anti-static which means the garment can be worn throughout the years and still look as new as the day it was purchased.
Possum fibre will not freeze, even when exposed to periods of prolonged cold. The only fibre on the planet known to have the same characteristic is Polar Bear fur.
Signature 'Mountain Geometric' Leather patch.
The brushtail possum was introduced to New Zealand in the 1850s and is now wreaking havoc on our natural wildlife and native forest. The need to control the number of possums to protect our native flora and fauna saw the development of this NZ exclusive, specialised natural fibre.
Possum fibre has no scales and is hollow, which gives both lightness and warmth, compared to other natural fibres of a similar micron.
Possum fibre is silky to handle providing an instant feel appeal unlike any other fibre.
Scarf made from a 60% Merino, 30% Possum, 10% Nylon blend.
The MKM boasts a 130-year tradition of creating finely crafted accessories.
Available in Navy, Charcoal Marle or Black.
Made in the rural heartland of Manawatu in the central North Island of New Zealand.
The Two-Way Beanie is as the name suggests, a beanie that can be worn two ways.
Wear it folded up fisherman style or rolled down sloucher style, what ever your vibe this beanie will give you warmth and aesthetics combined. Made from a luxurious blend of Possum fibre, Super Fine Merino and Silk, complete with Opus' signature Mountain Geometric patch, it performs just as well hiking the pass as it does sipping that long black on a mid winters morning commute to the office. Flip the fold and you'll feel just as comfortable debating the typography composition in the new company brochure.

Little Difference 'I Got You A Tree' Gift Card
Regular price$7.50 NZD
It's happening, for every single greeting card sold one tree will be planted in Africa towards permanent reforestation!!! This was the goal from the first conception of the Little Difference brand and we are so proud to say that they are achieving it!
These are not just any old trees to be cut down for paper again, these are native forests being re-established in areas where they are needed most. We have now paid for the planting of 2,500 trees in Ethiopia and 7,500 more in Madagascar - 10,000 trees in total!
The goal is to make a net positive impact on the natural environment with the products they produce. Meaning the more cards we sell, the better it is for the earth.
Let's try and leave Earth better than we found it...
