Origins of Kind Face

In 2020 the world was hit by COVID-19, and we knew we had to do something to help. By using our resources and skills in our existing company Uren Barsal (specialist soft furnishings manufacturing), we designed and stitched a range of comfortable, reusable face masks with our small team in Avondale, New Zealand. With a focus on natural materials and sustainable practices, Kind Face was born.

In just three months, we sold over 5000 masks and began exporting to Australia, the UK and the USA. Kind Face has expanded to a range of products for you and for the home including weighted eye masks and heat packs - just to name a few - and we don’t plan on stopping now. 


Feel Good Products

Everything we create is aimed to make you feel good. The materials are biodegradable. The linen is soft and luxurious to touch. Our shipping materials are compostable. We partner with Kiwi businesses to source every single material we use from the linen all the way down to the coconut shell buttons on our eye masks. 

We’re doing our part to be kind to New Zealand and to you.

Thanks for doing yours by supporting New Zealand manufacturing and this small family business. Every time you make a purchase, we do a little happy dance in your honour. 

Welcome to the Kind Face family.
