Velvet Heartbeat Curated

Brands we stock

We love having a curated selection of accessories from other ethical brands that compliment our style - basically things we love but can’t make! As with our own brand it is very important that anything we offer to you meets our values for ethical production, vegan materials and are consciously created. Here is a little about the brands we are working with and how to find them online if you would like to learn more…


Agnes & Me

Gorgeous natural skincare using only the best plant-based ingredients in small batches in a bush-clad setting in Titirangi, Auckland. All their products are: certified Buy NZ Made, cruelty-free, eco-friendly (they use glass and aluminium jars and compostable packaging for posting), toxin-free (of course), affordable (quality shouldn’t cost the earth). Created by Deirdre - a former nurse (with a background in quality).
