Our Packaging and Manufacturing

We support the ‘less is more’ mentality and strive to apply it to every aspect of our business and personal lives. The challenges that we’re globally facing have made us live up to our responsibility for the environment and use materials that are recyclable and compostable.

Jewellery is circular and recyclable, but even with that we strive to create pieces that come in small batches and not create waste and oversupply. This is why most of our pieces are available for pre-order.

We have responsibly sourced ecological boxes made of FSC-certified cardboard and paper, lined with natural wool felt. Wood and wood-based materials are renewable, easy to recycle and biodegradable. Sustainable forest management reduces CO2. As a result, boxes and cases made of cardboard make a significant contribution to protecting our environment.

Felt can take as little as a week to break down but, depending on the size and the makeup of the felt, the felt will be gone within about five weeks at most. To make it disappear into your soil quicker, break it into as small pieces as possible.

While packaging is an essential aspect of any business, we encourage looking at the box as an avenue of delivery. Focused on simplicity and practicality we’re currently using one box size to accommodate all pieces.

We understand that we all have a long way to go towards a more sustainable future and we strive to make choices that will leave a lasting positive impact on your lives, our planet and everyone involved in the creative process.

Our manufacturers

Our manufacturing partner is based in Seoul, South Korea. Our trusted jewelry manufacturer branched out on his own and now runs a team of 40 creatives. He founded his own manufacturing company over a decade ago, specializing in sterling silver and gemstones.

When it comes to our manufacturing, it has taken over a year to find and partner with our amazing team of jewelers who commit to exceptional craftsmanship, ethical practices and the finest materials. We only produce in small quantities. Not because we like waitlists, but because we firmly believe in quality over quantity.

Wild Wagon also has a small production studio in Auckland to design and create one off and bespoke pieces. Cristina Figursky, the designer and founder holds a BFA in Fine Arts and has completed a jewellery making course at Peter Minturn Goldsmith School in Auckland. Her unique style is influenced by her global upbringing between Chisinau, Nashville and NYC, leading up to happily settling in Auckland.
