Now in its fourth week, Only Limited is a website selling art, furniture, homewares, fashion and accessories by New Zealand designers, with each item available in limited numbers for a limited time. New designs are released each Sunday, and these stay on the site for a month, or until they sell out.

Because the site promotes the work of upcoming and established New Zealand designers, it is a great way to support entrepreneurs and also possibly to own an artwork by an artist that might one day hit the big time. 

Greer Garner started the site in reaction to her experience as a designer and a consumer. “The idea came about from a few different avenues. Having studied in design myself and created a couple of products, it was really hard to get a lot of traction on my own website, having only a small amount of content. I have always been drawn to products that are limited edition, there is something really special knowing there is not a lot of people out there with the same item.” 

Soon to be released is Komachi Collective who do one-off, hand-painted designs onto denim jackets. Also Sly and Company, who make one-off and limited edition clothing, with a collection of their own designs. Live right now is The Virtue’s photographic print collection, pictured.
