From the New Zealand grassroots to the global sporting stage, Canterbury of New Zealand make the finest rugby gear in the world. Founded in 1904, on the South Island in Canterbury making high-performance clothing. Clothes good enough to outfit an army – the Anzacs in World War I. The All Blacks insisted their rugby kit was made by Canterbury.
When the first ever rugby shirts were being made, pieces of material from all the different jerseys were left over. Canterbury had an idea – to take these colourful off-cuts and sew them together to create new, individual rugby shirts. No two were ever the same. The designs were so popular that Canterbury copy them today, to make the lining of their iconic Uglies stadium pant.
