All the Fun of Knack.

It rained & it poured on Saturday. But the Knack Craft Fair was busy, a hive of activity. Thanks to those who stopped by Filiokus' stall - great to see you.

Ahoy Me Hearties!

The very cool Pirate Rainhat, online soon & featuring at Knack Craft Fair this Saturday.

Happy Monday

It's a new week again, so let me show you some new photo's taken in the weekend. The shark hat was put to the test out in the rain - they will most certainly keep your head dry.

It looks like the wet & wild weather is heading our way again here in Wellington. Do email us at if you would like to purchase a rainhat, they will be online soon.

Come & see us this Saturday at the Knack Craft Fair - and purchase a fabulous rainhat.

A Sneak Peak to Start the Week.

Wow! Finally after lots of to-ing & fro-ing, designing & re-designing, and fabric changes we have the rainhats in production.
A Ferocious Shark, a Yellow Submarine, a Nippy Crab & "Ahoy Me Hearties" Pirate Hat.

How gorgeous are these Rainhats? Hope you think the same!

The rainhats are made from high tech waterproof fabric with cotton inner with cotton toggle ties. They are waterproof, perfect for the weather we have been experiencing lately. They are soft to touch, lovely to wear and are machine washable.

We have limited stock of these Rainhats, so be in quick for those wet winter days. They come in S, M, L sizes.

On Saturday the 26 June, Filiokus will be at the Knack Craft Market.
South Wellington Intermediate School Hall
30 Waripori St, Newtown,
9.30am – 1.30pm.
We would love to see you at Knack if you are in Wellington.

Happy week everyone!

... Easter egg hunting tomorrow.

It's raining, it's pouring...

Filiokus are looking at making some fabulous rainhats for those winter rainy days. Tallulah is modelling a sample rainhat. Let us know your thoughts about what you'd like to see in our rainhats, we would love to her from you.

Rain, Rain Go Away at the Fair!

Martinborough Fair - & the rain came. The rain decided to dump on us all quite a few times during the morning from about 7am, making it not very pleasant. Muddy puddles, and slippery tracks between stalls - thank goodness for our gazebo & red spotty dotty umbrella (a much needed shelter for our stock and shoppers). But the day did fine up & we had a great day.


Martinborough's February Fair was hot, very hot - a fabulous fun day. It is great to meet Filiokus' customers. Shoppers seem to arrive earlier very year, many arriving before 7am. It's an early start for stallholders - but a great day (even managing a wee look around ourselves). We are looking forward to seeing you all again at the March fair.

Next Martinborough Fair - Saturday 6th March, from 8.00am till 4.00pm. You will find Filiokus located in the main square.


Martinborough Fairs
Saturday 6th February
Saturday 6th March
8am - 4pm

Fun for the whole family.
This is a great summer event. Held in the picturesque Martinborough Square, the fair, reportedly the largest of it's type in Australasia, comprises over 480 stalls selling artwork, crafts, clothing, food and a host of other top quality products. Free entry.

Filiokus will be located in the main square under the trees. We will be on the righthand side, walking down the pathway (main square) from Kitchener Street.


A belated Happy 2010 to you all! Hope you had a refreshing holiday break.
We are having a slow start to 2010 - getting back into routine always takes a while after the excitement of Christmas, New Year & holidays.

If the sun hasn't been shining where you are add some colour to a grey day (rain, rain, go away, come again another day) in the way of a gorgeous vibrant dress, a butterfly, a flower or how about a seaside crab suit.

We are now looking forward to the Martinborough Fair on Saturday February 6th.
