Hi Kirsty, our cowhide arrived safe and sound this morning. We absolutely love it! We will be recommending your business and website to friends for sure. Thanks again, Debbie - VIC Australia April 2017

quoteDear Kirsty, We love the delicate (and robust!) alpaca blankets as well as the possum merino throw, which is gracing the back of a ‘pearl grey’ Laura Ashley sofa. Top quality products, top pleasure for us. Thank you from a totally satisfied customer. Warm regards, Ellen - NSW Australia - September 2016

quoteKirsty Hi, I just went back to your website and saw Gorgeous Creatures had received recognition for excellence in customer service; it promoted me to write back and give permission for you to publish feedback I provided below, and/or this as well. Truly, amazing customer service. We Aussies could learn a thing or two. Gorgeous Creatures will be my ‘go too’ from now on for possum merino, my absolute favourite. We have very cold winters here in Canberra that would rival NZ any day and possum merino is simply unbeatable for warmth and comfort. Josie May - ACT Australia - May 2016
 
reviewHi Kirsty, The scarves arrived today safe & Sound. I'm so happy with them, they are indeed gorgeous :-). Would love to buy a cardigan next, but have to save up for that one :) Thank you for such great customer service & such lovely products to make us feel special. Regards - Jenny. Perth WA - Australia - March 2015

quoteKirsty, We received our rug today, only 3 days delivery to Perth which is incredibly fast.  The rug is absolutely fantastic and exceeds our expectations, it is the perfect size and colour with a brilliant shiny coat.  It looked good in the picture on the website but it looks incredible on our wooden floor. Before we had ordered your rug we had purchased a cowhide rug locally in Perth, but once we got it home we had to return it because we were not happy with the quality.  We then searched the web, and being a kiwi boy that grew up on a dairy farm I researched what was available in NZ.  I saw your website and was impressed by your videos on how to pick a quality cowhide rug.  We then ordered this rug from you and boy are we glad we did. Your fantastic product, awesome service and fast delivery have made us very happy customers.  We would recommend gorgeous creatures products to anyone. Thanks, Jason - Perth - WA Australia - January 2015

quoteDear Kirsty, the fabulous possum throw is finally with me and it’s even more fabulous than I imagined. What is even better is that through the gift registry on your website, it contains the love and best wishes of family and friends. Such an excellent idea and so easy for people to use, both in NZ and overseas. It took the hassle out of thinking what to get for a birthday present and people knew they were contributing to something truly desired. Thanks again for your help with colourings and backing fabric and then the ultimate delivery. Cheers Elaine - Perth - Australia - August 2014

quoteKirsty, I forgot to write back to you and tell you how delighted we are with our Men’s Possum jumper you posted us.  It’s absolutely gorgeous and it’s the best reaction I've got for any birthday present for my husband as we live in the freezing highlands south of Sydney.  Also delightful for me to hug! Couldn't be happier…it’s a gorgeous product and will bring us pleasure for years to come.  Thank you! Kristie - Sydney - NSW Australia - July 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, The possum fur has arrived! It looks spectacular, or did for the 5 mins it was artfully draped on the sofa before the boys wrapped themselves in it for the rest of the afternoon. The colour is perfect, in fact almost identical to our tabby cat which may be an issue as she also has quite taken to the rug and she is very difficult to see once on it – a squishing risk so we will have to remember to look out for her white nose. Thanks for all your help and advice in sizing and colour choice, it is a beautiful product. Will try and send photos if I can hunt out the camera this weekend. Kind regards, Julie  - Perth - WA Australia - June 2014

quoteMorning Kirsty, I hope you are doing swell for a Wednesday. I just wanted to thank you for your professional, yet personal touch to my dad's and his wife's joint birthday present. I was quite touched by the thoughtfulness when I read your email. I guess customer service is still alive and well in NZ!!! Thanks again and have a great day. Kind regards, Rochelle - Brisbane - QLD Australia - May 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, Our new ottoman is absolutely gorgeous. Your friendly service and help was above and beyond, with phone calls and photos along the way. The ottoman is exactly what we wanted. Kind regards, Robin - Sydney - NSW - Australia - March 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, I received your goods today and love them! Thanks for the fast delivery and beautiful merchandise. I didn't expect the quality to be so high. I will definitely purchase again online. Kind regards, Suzy - NSW - Australia

quoteIt has arrived and I love it! The wool is beautiful, the colour is just right and it's so soft!! I can't wait to sink my toes into it!! We are moving into our new house in December. I might order another one of those sheepskins for the couch, but will wait and see if it's needed. Thanks so much for your help, you were brilliant!! Cheers, Megan - Melbourne VIC - Australia

quoteHi Kirsty, The rug has arrived and is officially the first piece in my new apartment! Quality is WAY better then anticipated and fills the room perfectly. Once I put all the furniture in the lounge (couple off weeks) I will email some pics. Thank you very much! And I absolutely love it ! :) Regards, Simon - Melbourne VIC - Australia

quoteHi Kirsty, The ottoman arrived safely only 2 days later. It is amazing . I said to my husband is it wrong to love a piece of furniture as much as I love you! (joking...kind of ) He has taken it down to the farm so I will take a photo and send it to you once I get down there and style it properly. Thanks so much for a great piece. Jacqueline - Melbourne VIC - Australia

quoteDear Gorgeous Creatures, Received my second, world's most beautiful cardigan today..... I am SO HAPPY..... I have to tell you, I bought my first one 18 months ago whilst on our third holiday to your beautiful country. I wore it a lot last winter and it kept me SO WARM! I always regretted only buying one :( I even considered flying over for a weekend on a cheap flight, to buy a cardigan.... eek......THEN....., I came across your website..... mmmmmm I think I'm going to become a frequent shopper :) I was SO HAPPY to find I could get another cardigan, am thinking about a black one now....... Would be great for work! Thank you, so much.... Jenny - NSW - Australia

quoteDear Kirsty, The two calf skins arrived this morning, thank you. They look great in place and I am very pleased with their result. It's always a bit difficult working off a website photo but they are exactly as I envisaged them. Only one complaint - my husband stole your chocolate! Many thanks for your prompt attention. Julie - QLD - Australia

quoteHello, I now know why you are called "Gorgeous Creatures".....the cowhide rug arrived on Tuesday and it is just BEAUTIFUL. How do you get the hide SO soft??? I have tried tanning (kangaroo and wallaby hides) in the past and can't get anywhere near that result. I could not believe that it drapes like fabric and fitted into such a small box. It sits perfectly on the floor and does not move. Kerry is delighted and so am I. Now I just have to think of an excuse to buy myself something from you! Thanks for the quick delivery and having a product that exceeds expectation.....such a lovely surprise. Colleen - NSW - Australia Dec 2012
quoteDear Kirsty, I recently purchased a large sheepskin from you for our new Lagotto puppy, Alfie. He came home to us on Thursday and until that point had been sleeping in a big heap with his litter mates. As the Lagotto has wool rather than fur I thought it would feel similar to snuggling with the other puppies. The sheepskin has been a huge success and seems to be very comforting for him. The only thing now is I think I may need to order another one so I don't have to keep moving it backwards and forwards between his bed and the living room!! Thanks for a beautiful product! Kind Regards Amanda - NSW Australia July 2017

quoteI just received my two blankets, everything is prefect. Arrived safe and sound. I'm so in love with them. They are so wonderful. Wish I had ordered them sooner. My partner and I are going to wrap ourselves up in them on the couch and watch a movie. Thank you again, Regards Daniel - NSW Australia - May 2017

quote Good morning, received my beautiful calf skin rug today, its gorgeous, not sure i want to put it on the floor now....its to pretty, Thanks again, Deb - QLD - Australia - April 2017

quoteDear Kirsty, Hello. I wanted to let you know that the beautiful mohair throw that I ordered from you has arrived safely. It's such a lovely colour! Thank you very much. :-) Peace - Aurelia - NSW Australia - March 2017

quoteYesterday I received one of your sheepskins. My wife loved it and arrived in perfect order. Possibly order another soon. Regards - Tim - Tasmania - July 2016

quoteHi Kirsty, Just wanted to let you know I love both the jacket and scarf . I have used them heaps already due to some very cold mornings and nights here in Perth, probably not as cold as yours but still cold for us. Thanks again, Sally - Perth WA Australia - July 2015
quoteHi Kirsty, Just to let you know I received the rug this morning, absolutely gorgeous, I am very happy. Thanks so much & have a Merry Christmas. Kind regards - Wendy - VIC Australia.

quoteI found an amazing cow skin ottoman in one of Sydney's chicest designer furniture stores, the price tag, however, was horrifying. I searched on line for an alternative and came across Gorgeous Creatures. While it was a quite a significant investment to be made across the seas, the team at GC were incredibly helpful and open. It gave me the confidence to place the order, pay the money and cross my fingers. I could not be happier. The resulting Ottoman is far better than the one I saw at the original retailer at about 1/3 of the price. I've only had it a week (very fast, well communicated delivery) but everyone that walks into my home is bowled over by how chic it looks. It is a beautiful piece that I'm sure will give us many, many years of pleasure. Thanks GC. Dale - Sydney - NSW Australia.

quoteDear Kirsty, Just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to purchase something so beautiful and Unique for my newest addition! I received my order [calfskin baby booties] this morning and was amazed at how fast it arrived to Australia! I'm currently looking at purchasing a few more gorgeous pair's from you for upcoming Baby Showers "I believe i will have the best gift to give to my lovely expecting mummy friend's thanks to you" And you know what the Calf hide booties was a HUGE HIT with my partner :) I was a bit worried about customs but I'm glad it sneaked through :) As I have recently been caught out from buying Horse main and tail from UK for a rocking horse that my partner and I are currently building "Customs price was ridiculous" Thank you for your great customer service and I cant wait to make my next purchase who knows it could possibly be today ;) Much Love Peta - Queensland - Australia.

quoteHi Kirsty, the cowhide rug arrived today and it is the ultimate thing! Beautiful! Thanks very much. Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Cheers Herwig – Queensland – Australia.

quoteYou are not going to believe this but my gorgeous cow hides and gloves arrived at 10.30 this morning!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!! Derek was here to sign. I just got home from work and couldn't believe it!! They are absolutely beautiful and so so soft. The cream one is just lovely and my favourite (the black and white one) is actually on our bed at the moment. I just love them. The gloves are so soft and warm. We are going to save and purchase from you one of the black possum throws and definitely one of your ottomans or footstools. I have never had anything arrive so quickly before. I am still in shock!!! Thank you so so much Kirsty, have a great day. - Louise - Mittagong - NSW Australia
 
quoteJust thought I’d drop you a quick line to let you know that my ottoman arrived yesterday all good, put the legs on, no problems, it looks fantastic in my lounge, Thank you for your excellent service and great quality product….No problem with customs or extra duty either, Bonus!!! Paul - Sydney - NSW Australia
 
quoteThank you so much for all your help in this process – it has been great! The hide is just fabulous, we all love it! It fits in perfectly and contains the most divine colours. I will do my best to pass on as many people as possible and I have no doubt I will be in touch very soon with more orders! Sarah - Albury NSW - Australia.

quoteReceived my cowhide yesterday and just want to let you know how delighted i am with it and can't wait until our new home is completed (November) so i can show it off. Thank you for your excellent service and speedy delivery............ i will certainly recommend your company to all my friends. Kind regards Julie - Bulli NSW Australia.

quoteJust a quick email to let you know that my cows and reindeer etc arrived just now, with no problems through customs. I absolutely LOVE the product, it is even better than I thought it would be, the colours and textures are beyond perfect for our house. And the wallet/bag I bought for my mum as a present, just might be staying in my possession (haha). Thank you so much! Many thanks, Corinne - Sydney NSW - Australia.

quoteThe zebra arrived safely and I LOVE it! It looks absolutely wonderful on our terracotta tile floor and with our black leather sofas. I look forward to receiving the two zebra cushions when they are ready. Again my thanks for your excellent service. I would recommend Gorgeous Creatures to anyone here looking for an animal print rug. Thanks again for your great service and great product. (Second order of cushions) They have arrived and they are great. I am just delighted with both the rug and matching covers. I am a very satisfied customer who would be happy to recommend you to anyone who was interested. Felicity - Melbourne VIC Australia.
 
quoteMy rug is absolutely beautiful Kirsty. I can’t thank you enough for your suggestion of the colour and texture of my Hereford cow hide. The long hair is so cosy and the richness of tone compliments the colour scheme of my mid century home. Michelle - VIC Australia.
 
quoteA friend came over and as she was undoing the box, then the bag I got so excited. It truly is magnificent, the colours amazing softer than silk (or at least as soft). I'm so glad that I trusted my judgement when I saw it on the site. I just kept going back to the image, knowing it was the one. Thank you sooooo much, I will treasure it. Lisa - VIC Australia.

quoteHi Kirsty, been so busy only just picked up my BEAUTIFUL possum throw from the Courier depot – thank you, it is even more gorgeous than I imagined! Cheers - Penny - Waiheke Island - August 2015

quoteHi Kirsty, Got the pet sheepskin rug yesterday, thanks so much! And it's gorgeous! Now having trouble getting the doggy off it:-) Kind regards. Leonie - Paraparaumu - February 2015

quoteOMG!! The hide arrived this morning and it's even more stunning than in the photo! I absolutely love it! Couldn't be happier! Thank you Kirsty for such wonderful service and such a superior product. I will definitely spread the word! Cheers, Petra - Raniora - December 2014

quoteDear Kirsty, I write to thank you for your time and professionalism in assisting me to create my perfect ottoman. From the outset you were very accommodating, allowing me to take home different hides to compare against my existing furnishings. At all times you were a pleasure to deal with. What most impressed me, was your willingness to experiment with different leg options. When the existing range was not quite what I was after, you went so far as to arrange for a set of wooden prototype legs without additional charge to me. Then when I decided to electroplate a set of aluminium legs, you even offered to arrange follow up, drop off and collection. Nothing seemed too difficult for you, and your willingness to positively respond to and assist me with my various ideas made what could have been quite a frustrating process, a breeze. The ottoman itself is precisely what I was after. It was well constructed, and looks beautiful. I would, without reservation, recommend your services to anyone looking for a high quality, beautiful piece of furniture. Thank you again. Regards Angela - Auckland - November 2014.

quoteHi Kirsty, The parcel arrived today, very impressed by the quality of the sheepskins: thank you for great service! Kind Regards, Janine - Palmerston North - New Zealand - November 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, Attached is a photo of the Mocha Chocolate Reindeer Skin I bought off you last week. I was so pleased that you suggested this rug to the original cowhide. I would never have thought that this colour would blend in so well with our furnishings. Thanks for your friendly, helpful and knowledgeable advice. The sheepskins  have added a luxurious feeling to our office too! Cheers, Ave - Auckland - November 2013

quoteGood Morning, Just to let you know I have received the [mohair] throws and they are beautiful I will let you know how they are received as gifts in the UK. Regards Jean - Auckland - September 2014

quoteKirsty, I received them this afternoon. I absolutely LOVE the colour. I hope u have sold heaps. Beautiful quality. I can't wait to wear to work tomorrow....Will get plenty of compliments, I'm sure. Thank u so much. Keren - Auckland - August 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, Your beautiful rug [mohair] was a great success. The envy of all those in the rest home! The colour was perfect. Thanks so much. Cheers, Barbara - Invercargill - July 2014

quoteWow! My natural multi toned sheepskin arrived today, it's so incredibly beautiful just like you said it was Kirsty. Thank you so much, it arrived in time just as you said it would. I'll recommend your products to everyone they're top quality. Thanks again, Penny - Wellington - June 2014

quoteJust to say a big 'Thank You' for your help in getting the wrist warmerscaps and balaclava to me so promptly last week. They are just fabulous and have been very well received!!! I shall be back for more! Jenny - Hamilton - New Zealand.

quoteIt has been a delightful experience obtaining an ottoman from Gorgeous Creatures. From the outset we were after a very particular colour in the hide. Kirsty invited us to take numerous hides home on trial. When none suited she put in an order for one on a no obligations basis. It was perfect. Kirsty also visited our home to ensure we were completely happy with the hide and to help us decide on the dimensions of the ottoman. Nothing was too much trouble. Ultimately the completed product was delivered on time and looks fantastic. Now we are tempted to order another one! Graeme & Sally - Auckland - New Zealand.

quoteHi Kirsty, thank you so very much for our wonderful rug!  It's truly gorgeous :)  I absolutely love the way light plays on it.  I could actually sit here for quite some time just looking at it :) Thanks again for the wonderful product and service! All the best. Liana - Wellington - New Zealand.

quoteHi there, sorry this has taken me so long, but I wanted to write you a little note to say how pleased I was with my purchase. You were not the cheapest supplier for the skins but I am totally glad I choose you as the quality is gorgeous and I just loved the personal touch of the note and chocolate. Thank you! I wish you lots of business success. Nicola - Taupo - New Zealand.

quoteHi Kirsty, Cowhide arrived early this morning, its even nicer than I expected, I just love it and it looks wonderful in my living room.................thanks so much , such great service and the chocolate will be yum! Robyn - Lower Hutt - New Zealand.

quoteThanks for sending me such a beautiful cowhide. It looks great in front of the fireplace. Thanks again for great service, I'm rapt. Pam - Keri Keri, New Zealand.

quoteEvery time children visit my home they go straight to my cowhide rug and roll around on it. Kids absolutely love it. It is a joy to watch their happiness. I think they love the tactile softness. This was an unexpected bonus, thank you for everything. Susan - Auckland, New Zealand.

quoteThe hide arrived only 2 days after my order; it's beautiful and I'm thrilled and it is going to look spectacular in my new house [moving in in 10 days] on a pale wood floor along with dark tan leather sofas and a dark wood exotic huge coffee table. Many thanks. Juliet - Wanganui, New Zealand.

quoteThanks again, we just love our rug. Had loads of compliments and telling everybody about you. Hope business is doing well. Kind regards, Karyn - Auckland, New Zealand.
 
quoteI have finally downloaded photos from my camera and found the one with the cowhide. Thought you might like to see how we have displayed it in our lounge. I think it looks great and had lots of nice comments about it, especially about the size! So thank you for your help in choosing this cool cowhide we are very pleased with it. Mari - Wanganui, New Zealand.

quoteThe Cow hide arrived about the same time as we did to work this morning, very speedy delivery!! We are both very pleased with it, we can’t really say any more other than it is just ‘gorgeous’. Paul and Tracey - Gisborne, New Zealand.

quoteJust a wee note to let you know the ottomans arrived safe and sound. We just think they are great! Thanks so much for the service and prompt making of them. We will come back to you when we are in the market for some other animals! Next time we are in Auckland we will pay you a visit to see your show room. If you have a database of customers please put my name on it. Once again thanks so much. Cheers Mark - Cromwell, New Zealand.
 
quoteHi Kirsty, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your time yesterday and letting us peruse your showroom at leisure. Mum said that you made her shopping experience enjoyable ~ and I have to agree! I absolutely love all the pieces we purchased, and I'll definitely keep an eye on your website for furnishings in my new home. I was taking down colours that caught my eye from the colour swatches while I was there. Although I don't wear much colour myself, I do have an eclectic mix of colours around the house whether it be cushions, vases, or even enameled pots & tagines in various colours in the kitchen. So don't be surprised if I request some random, "out there" coloured blankets and throws ~ I promise you I haven't lost my marbles :-) Take care, and I'll be in touch soon! Kindest regards, Lindy - Auckland - May 2017

quoteHi Kirsty, Just to let you know that I received my Reindeer skin today and it is beautiful! Many Thanks - Erica - Wellington - January 2016

quoteHi there, thanks so much - I can't believe how quickly this [mohair throw] got to me, and the colour is perfect!!  Mum's Christmas pressie - sorted! Cheers Rachel - Wellington - November 2015

quoteHi Kirsty, I have received the rugs I ordered from you and just want to let you know that they are definitely “gorgeous creatures”.  Thanks for these lovely accessories that will be much loved in our new beach house. Will hopefully find an excuse to do business with you again. Regards Donna - Masterton - November 2015

quoteHello, The lovely merino blanket arrived this morning.  It is exactly the right colour as it matches our Persian rug and looks fantastic across the bed. Thank you - Deborah - Nelson - August 2015

quoteHi Kirsty, Our ottoman arrived safe and sound on Monday. It is beautiful.  The hide is glossy and gorgeous. The ottoman is generous in size and will be a perfect focal point as well as offering extra seating options.  It's going to look amazing in our new home in Brisbane.  Many thanks (and well done on the packing and freighting). P.S  Our daughters are completely enamoured - they have named the ottoman Rosie (it's a girl by the way!) - Jenny - Invercargill (soon to be Brisbane)

quoteHi, Thank you for taking my call on a Sunday. I bought one of the beautiful cream baby blankets for my Grandson in London. My son said that my Grandson settles straight away with the lovely blanket and he has requested another one – hence my second order ! Thank you. Chris - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteHi Kirsty, Wow!!! What a BEAUTIFUL sheepskin, and one extremely happy girl, she just looooovves it! Thank you! Might have to invest in one myself sometime soon. Cheers Lindy - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteDear Kirsty, We love our possum skin throw.  The chocolate colour is so rich, and the fur shines beautifully, highlighting the natural variations in the pelts. On colder nights we throw it on top of our covers. It feels light and warm.  I LOVE the feel of the fur brushing against my skin.  It is one of those rare purchases that fill me with delight and happiness every time I think of it or see it.  My only regret is that we didn't get one a long time ago. Sharon - Tauranga - New Zealand

quoteHi Kirsty, The rug arrived today and it's beautiful. We have another hide we had done years ago, but this one sits so much flatter and is lovely and glossy. Regards, Duncan and Bridget - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteThank you very much for the lovely quality NZ made wool blended Beanie & Scarf they were just what I was looking for to send for a Christmas gift to my dear friend in Germany. I definitely know where to find quality NZ made products now, thank you. Donna - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteMany thanks Kirsty. They [6 possum merino beanies] all arrived today and are just what I wanted.
Cheers - Sue - Wellington


quoteHi Kirsty I just wanted to reiterate our thanks for the excellent service we received from you recently with our cowhide rug purchase. The rug arrived quickly and well-packaged and it was great being able to try it on appro on our home.  We love our rug and know it will be a lasting feature in our home for many years. Thanks you once again. Merryn - Wellington - New Zealand

quoteGorgeous Creatures in Newton has a fabulous range of the best quality cow hides around. We brought one last year for our lounge area and have been really surprised at the durability and quality of it. We have two young kids, a dog and a cat and the hide still looks new! Recently our home was used as part of a school fundraiser where a few selected homes were on show for ticket holders to view. The idea was to give people a taste of varying renovation styles, budgets, and stages. The house looked great - as you can see from the photo's! I personally thank you Kirsty and I'd also like to extend a massive thank you from Balmoral School as all funds raised from this project went to the school and our kids. Awesome! Thanks again - we'll be back! Sasha - Auckland - New Zealand
 
quoteI am more than happy to recommend "Gorgeous Creatures" to clients and friends as the best boutique retailer of cow-skin rugs in New Zealand and Australia. Kirsty has an amazing eye for selecting beautiful colour, texture and quality - rugs that will perfectly complement both traditional and contemporary interiors. I've also been impressed by her expert knowledge of the product and extremely grateful for her willingness to go beyond the call of duty to get a "gorgeous creature" delivered to me!
Fiona - Interior Designer - Auckland - New Zealand.

quoteI absolutely love my possum merino top and scarf. It is deliciously warm, soft, and feels wonderful to wear. Wool usually irritates my skin, makes me itchy and can encourage my eczema, so the possum merino is perfect for my sensitive skin. Anna - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteThank you also for making all of my visits to your store such easy and enjoyable ones! I am loving all of my purchases (rugs etc) and my kids (myself included) are enjoying the possum fur. It drapes the family couch and never stays put as my kids love to snuggle in it, even at this time of the year!! I was a bit nervous about having it on the couch all the time (dirt, kids etc..) but it is one of the easiest, fuss free pieces in our lounge. It doesn't crease and is exceptionally easy to spot clean!! and the calf skin underside is divine, well worth the extra in price. I will most definitely be back some time in the future and look forward to the new launch! Sharleen - Auckland - New Zealand

quoteHi Kirsty, It is home and looks fantastic! We love it to bits....The kids are going to name it though. Works for me! There is a New Zealand children's picture book called Cow Power by Kim Riley about a dairy cow in Shannon who saved a farmer. The kids wanted to name 'our cow' so they dug out that book and she was christened - "569". A very special cow and a very special rug. We, the kids and the dog - love it! Emma & John - Wellington - New Zealand.

quoteWow, if you want to know about good quality leather, cowhide, fur. This is the lady to talk to. Do not buy a Opossum throw or Cowhide Rug until you have spoken to this lady. She will tell you all about the traps, cheap and nasty's, care, uses, price, origins. The knowledge she has is just awesome. I have learnt so much from her I wouldn't buy from anyone else because I know the care, quality and attention she provides and trust her knowledge 100%. Andree - Auckland - New Zealand.

quoteHi Kirsty, The cowhide arrived this afternoon and we LOVE it. Thank you so much for recommending that particular one. I'm sure we'll have plenty of years enjoyment out of it. Thanks again. Amanda - Blenheim - New Zealand.

Dear Kirsty - thank you so much for the GORGEOUS wrist-warmers which came yesterday. I would just like you to know that these are the single most wonderful thing which has happened for my poor left wrist in 3 months since I fractured it (it is having more than a bit of trouble healing). I put the wrist-warmers on to lay down on the couch in the sun to take a nap and I felt like I was in heaven- they were like a mini-spa for my wrists and hands. Thank you for uplifting my spirits and for the beauty you are spreading in this world. Blessings to you and your lovely work and much love, Reetta USA - July 2017

quoteHi Kirsty, The hide arrived already and is beautiful!!! Fits perfectly on the ottoman. I have four guests and they are all in love with it, I'll send a photo tomorrow. Thanks so much! Mary Beth - Springfield Illinois USA - Oct 2015

quoteKirsty, My blanket arrived and I love, love, love it.  My daughter and I saw one in San Diego but did not buy it and have been looking for another ever since.  When I saw your website, I KNEW that was what we wanted.  She is going off to college for the first time so I ordered it for her and since I often wear lavender essential oil instead of perfume, I rubbed a little on my hands and touched the blanket.  When she realized this was the blanket she had been looking for for almost a year she just teared up and held it. Then she looked at me and said "Mommy it smells like you!" This will be the perfect thing for her when she gets a little home-sick.  You guys are awesome. Thank You Thank You Thank You!!! Rebecca California USA Sept 2015

quoteKirsty, the skins arrived today and they are fabulous, thank you. The package was small (as you promised) and heavy reflecting the quality of the contents. I have them on the floor with the others we purchased while in Auckland. They fit beautifully and it brings back great memories. We had friends from Boston visit this weekend and they loved them. I will keep monitoring your site and expect another order. Best wishes, David - Vancouver - Canada October 2014

quoteDear Kirsty, I got my sheepskin today. It is so gorgeous! Absolutely perfect. Such a high quality piece. I'm just thrilled with it. Thank you so much!  p.s. I appreciate your packaging, too, with the green ribbon and the plastic bag instead of a box. Marja - California - USA October 2014

quoteHi Kirsty, We have the rug. It's beautiful and in good order. You read our mind. Thank you for your instructions on the care and cleaning of the cowhide rug. Kind regards, Antonio - Manila - Philippines - August 2014

quoteHi Kristy, I recently placed an order for a Grey knit hat and scarf. The order arrived today and I’m very happy with my purchase. The Possum Merino wool is so soft and beautiful I’m sure I’ll get lots of wear from both. I can’t wait to show off my new soft wears. Thank you very much. Teresa - New York USA.

quoteKirsty, we are home, cowhides are on the floor and they are fabulous, we love them. There was no problem at entry at all. I am going to chat with Heidi and maybe see if I can convince her the beige cow skin needs a mate, in the black one! We will wait until we see the new shipment pictures as I think we will get more calf skins as well. Thanks again for being so patient with us and for the great service. All the best. David - Canada

quoteMission accomplished. My wife opened the [possum fur] throw tonight and loved it. Looks great. Thank you for following up. Frank - Texas - USA

quoteHi Kirsty Sheepskins have arrived - they're awesome!! Million times better than the sheepskin rug i bought in the UK a few years ago. Definitely need to get some more of these - just  need to work out where to put them! Dan - Tokyo - Japan 

quoteFantastic quality, way exceeding my expectations! Having purchased fur products in various parts of the world these are without doubt the best quality i have ever come across. The possum fur throw is exceptionally warm, and beautifully soft while the ottoman really is a work of art - beautifully reflecting light with fantastic natural colours. Cannot recommend Kirsty and her team highly enough, for fur products Gorgeous Creatures is the only place I will go to in the future. Dan - Tokyo - Japan

quoteDear Kristy, We just received the cow hide (named Daisy, we hope it was a She) and it's nothing short of gorgeous. Thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our home. Best wishes for the Holidays to come. Pascale and Paul - Bolton Connecticut - USA

 
quoteHi Kirsty, Thank you so much. The rug arrived last week and I have it now in the room and just love it. It is beautiful!  Hope all is well and best wishes to you. Debra - Ashland Oregon USA - Oct 2015

quoteDear Kirsty: I can not thank you enough. The package arrived today with the items that I ordered from you.  The package was in great shape (having traveled almost 9,000 miles [over 14,000 kilometers) and the items were exactly what I was looking for!  I also have to tell you that you are just a delight to have met and talked to (both on-line and over the phone) and you were unbelievably helpful in making sure I ordered and received exactly what I was looking for.  You were also extremely helpful in working with me to determine the appropriate method of shipping. In today's world, as one searches on-line for an item it is extremely difficult to know who you are dealing with and whether or not the person and company are honest and responsible and whether or not the product will be of high quality and whether or not it will even come as promised.  However, you (and Gorgeous Creatures) are a company that exemplifies how businesses can and should operate and deal with customers.  You are helping to define what customer service should be. I look forward to recommending you to all of my friends and, in fact, I am looking forward to figuring out what else I can order from you, as I do look forward to the possibility of working with you again. Kirsty - you are wonderful!! Regards, Marc - Connecticut - USA

quoteDear Kirsty, I just wanted to tell you that I received the beanie and that I love it! Thank you for the little word as well, it is always very pleasant! I lost a beanie I bought in New Zealand last year and to tell you the truth, that was a real drama because I was wearing it all the time! A drama until I found out about your website on the Internet! Well this one is even more beautiful than the one I lost! I will keep the address of your website preciously! Marie-Julienne - Paris - France

quoteDear Gorgeous Creatures, Hats arrived – I’m so happy ...thanks. Paola - Japan


quoteHi Kirsty, Thank you for your efforts. The possum skin is exactly as we wanted, and you are quite right, the colour of it changes dramatically in the light. We appreciate greatly the trouble you went to, not only in obtaining exactly what we were after, but in getting our possum fur ready under time pressure for transport to Hong Kong. Your expertise, enthusiasm and dedication to the business should be commended, and we will not hesitate to recommend this business to prospective clients in the future. Regards Andrew and Melike - Hong Kong.

quoteIt’s gorgeous so thanks heaps. I have decided to hide it for xmas (excuse the pun!). Will def be in touch later re the possums. They look so luxurious. Thanks Kirsty. Great service and beautiful product. Pru - London, United Kingdom.

quoteThe deer skin arrived today in excellent condition. It is as pretty as the picture. Thank you! Deborah - South Carolina USA.

quoteDear Kirsty, Thanks a lot for the personal touch. I was thinking just yesterday, if you’d like a little testimonial for these beanies esp. for chemo people. Most people either don’t wear a beanie 24/7 OR they don’t mind / notice prickliness. But sick / weak / elderly would really notice, and their thin skin may chafe with ordinary wool. I wear mine in winter almost 24/24 hours also for sleep, and it NEVER irritates the skin or causes any prickliness which i think makes them suitable for little old ladies, people who are in hospital etc... Yours - Paola - Tokyo - Japan

quoteI contracted with Gorgeous Creatures to design and build a custom cowhide ottoman for my family room. The bottom line is...it totally exceeded my expectations...was exactly what I had imagined and more. Gorgeous Creatures is based in New Zealand and I live in Seattle Washington so I was adding a level of complexity to the purchase vs. buying in the U.S. That said, the prices were significantly better than anything I could get in North America and the quality was equal if not better. And Kirsty Mason who owns the company was a joy to work with and made the entire process simple and friction free. Thanks Kirsty for all your help and deliver an awesome ottoman. Doug - Seattle Washington - USA

quoteHi Kirsty, I would just like to say thanks a million for the brush and the shampoo [Woolskin washit work a treat. I thought I was going to have to throw my baby blanket away. But once I gave it a good brush it was back to the way it should be J delighted. Thanks again. Kind regards, Sharon - Ireland September 2015

quoteHi Kirsty, The jumper arrived in the post yesterday and it is magnificent. Fits beautifully and is lovely and warm. Just the thing for a Scottish winter. Thank you so much!! Many thanks - Laura - United Kingdom Scotland - Sept 2015
