Wholesale & Affiliates
The Bone Art Place represents some of New Zealand's best bone and jade artists. Our crafts people are very passionate about their work and will only sell hand crafted carvings of the absolute highest quality, both in workmanship and design.
Every carving is supplied with a traditional style cord and woven flax pouch.
We can also supply detailed descriptions of the meaning of the designs.
If you are looking for exclusive, high quality bone and jade carvings, The Bone Art Place is where you will find them. If however you are looking for cheap, mass produced machine cut replica bone carving, there are a number of companies in Asia and India who can supply these for you.
We are seeking agents and retailers who are committed to genuine quality and service. You need to be as passionate about ethnic art as we are and understand that every carving has a meaning and a spirit of its own.
We have a full range of traditional and contemporary designs available. We are also able to customize existing designs to your specifications or create new ones on request.
