About EP

ELECTRIC PUKEKO  - Fashion Hats & Sunglasses

We’re a funky and fresh company bringing you the latest and greatest fashions from around the world since 2007.

EP first made its mark on the world by supplying fashion-forward items such as trilby hats and sunglasses to music festivals throughout Europe.  Having taken the European market by storm, the EP team felt it was time to bring the Electric Pukeko home to roost.

“We thought it was high time Kiwis were no longer deprived of our wickedly vibrant and stylish accessories for both guys and girls.

Remember life is too short to blend in!"

We supply a range of retailers throughout New Zealand, and can generally offer product quantities to suit each individual business.  Electric Pukeko is also a fantastic choice for promotional products, supplying bulk quantities of branded caps, widebrims and trilby hats to meet the needs of businesses, wineries, festivals and other large scale events. 

Owned and operated by Andrew McKenzie (Macca) & Jessica Whyte who have built up well established connections which allow them to access an amazing range of fashionablel products from various countries within Asia.

Company Overview

Electric Pukeko was one of two buisness ideas thought up one sunny day in Portugal a few years back- the other was to mix up a batch of Sangria using bulk wine which a bunch of mates had just purchased. Two things were decided the next day while nursing Sangria hangovers, firstly that ...they would never again buy wine in 5 litre plastic bottles, and secondly that Macca & Jess would start working on getting this Pukeko off the ground and into full flight. (OK for you Kiwis out there… we know that Pukekos can’t fly…but ours is ‘electric’ so it can do pretty much anything we want it to!)

After doing extensive and painstaking research at as many festivals as they could get to, and scoping out the latest fashions at the beach, Andrew & Jess decided on a simple product range that covered all the necessities for summer. This new Electric Pukeko range would also allow its followers to create their own unique look at a festival, beach, or just out and about.

So after many years of reserach Macca the 'treasure hunter' with the help and support of his partner Jessica - 'festival and fashion researcher', Electric Pukeko grew from a Sangria driven revelation, into a fully fledged fashion accessories business.

We are thrilled to of created a summer orientated business where we are super busy during the New Zealand summers supplying to shops and promoting EP at music festivals around the country. Winter time (4 months) consists of our buying trips overseas with market research of the European fashion scene to keep up with the new styles and materials being used in the upcoming seasons collection which inspires us for the New Zealand range!
