Kiwishirts Is Your Favorite, Online Kiwistore.
During my backpacking adventures in New Zealand, I took a lot of photographs. These combined with my memories and great experiences I created over 30 different designs inspired by the country of the long white cloud.
Now, these designs are available to you. You can choose your favorite T-shirt, Tank Top, Longsleeve, or Hoodie and I will print the right color and size with a little help from Spreadshirt, our print-on-demand partner. And if you are not 100% happy with your purchase, please let us know. We will figure something out to make your heart sing.

It all started with my first backpack trip to New Zealand
My first backpacking journey in New Zealand started in October 2009. It was one big adventure. I bought a Toyota Estima called Lucy for this first road trip.
Kiwishirts is a brand from Studio Pico, my little design studio based in the Netherlands. Many travelers have bought one of the Studio Pico and Kiwishirts designs. You will find my customers anywhere around the world from New Zealand to Germany, and the United States to French Polynesia.
I make my designs using Inkscape. It is a free program for making professional quality vector graphics. It looks a lot like Adobe’s Indesign, but cheaper. I have spend 8 months in New Zealand in the last 10 years, and all hikes, road trips, and other adventures have led to these Kiwishirts designs.
You will buy your shirt, sweater, or water bottle from our store. Spreadshirt will print your order on-demand and ship it wherever your home is.

Owner and Designer
I feel at my very best with my backpack on my back traveling the world—especially those countries with high mountains, gorgeous beaches, and magical forests.
One of the most beautiful countries on earth, New Zealand, stole my heart back in 2009 when I traveled through this stunning country for 5 months, and where I had to return to ten years later with my husband, Tonnie.
Husband and Travel Companion
“It doesn’t matter where you’re going; it’s who you have beside you.” Tonnie is my absolute best friend and partner who does not mind me choosing the road less traveled.
He is a rock I can build on! He carries the most weight in his backpack, puts up the tent when I am tired, fixes a flat tire, and cooks meals in front of our MSR Hubba Hubba tent.
