Weaving beautiful textiles for you to treasure ...

We are passionate about weaving New Zealand wool into beautiful fabrics for fashion and interiors.


Crafted with respect, woven with love, textiles to treasure

We are Rod and Sue McLean, working together as McLean & Co., using heritage looms and locally sourced wool to bring you ethically produced, traditionally woven and stitched textile products.

Our textiles are all woven by us, here in Oamaru, New Zealand, on our very rare George Hattersley & Sons looms, designed in 1895 and manufactured in the early 20th century.

We take pride in our craftsmanship, our beautiful woollen textiles and what we make from them.

McLean and Co. - crafted by us, for you

New at McLean & Co.

We weave using a Hattersley Domestic Weaving System - possibly the only set of its kind left in the world.

What our customers say

I absolutely love my McLean & Co scarf - it's so soft and warm. I love that it's unique and when I wear it I feel really special. Thanks Rod and Sue.

Jodi, Oamaru

Hi Sue, Thanks for your note. The cushions arrived today and they look absolutely wonderful. You do such great work..

Jared and Hayley, Dunedin

Dear Sue and Rod - thanks so much for sending up the fantastic scarf, I love it, and look forward to it being cold enough up here to wear it. As you say, an excellent souvenir of Ōamaru, and a special example of craftsmanship.

Gregory, Auckland

I can't live without my McLean goodies - I am addicted to the soft touch and high quality of the weaving. I wear one of my McLeans every day.

Elli, Arrowtown
