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.


Be Part of the Waitaki Collection story

A selection of popular McLean & Co. products for you ..

Our Collections

At McLean & Co. we specialize in weaving limited edition collections of fabric using NZ wool and other natural fibres, creating products that are kind to people, animals and our planet.

We create textiles that tell a story about time and place, and are treasured for their integrity.

When you purchase a McLean & Co, you buy a piece that is timeless, classic, sustainable and 100% NZ made.

Every collection is inspired by our environment and the things we love, and we know you will love them as much as we do.

Crafted by us, for you, with love.


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