Nature, crafted and curated
We are the curators of natural self-care sourced from the conscious artisans of New Zealand, collecting the most sustainable self-care brands and products that are uniquely and authentically from our part of the world.
As careful selectors of luxury goods, we delve into all facets of their creation and tell the unique tales of our pieces, how they came to be and the people who craft them, in equal measure.
Natural products are at the forefront of our offering, chosen for their sustainability and clean, authentic ingredients. New Zealand and its green ethos are beautifully woven into each piece, bringing only nature’s finest and leaving the rest.
All things considered.
In harmony with nature.
A token of luxury.
From New Zealand, with love.
So where did it all begin? I’m Rachel, the quiet curator behind all things considered. Though I spent most of my life living and working in the Middle East, New Zealand will always be home for me.
In fact, distance only made the heart grow fonder - in my time overseas, I was often thinking about how the great New Zealand brands I knew and loved could be more accessible to humans around the world.
In 2020, back in New Zealand, the opportunity arose and all things considered was born. Natural is what we do best here in Aotearoa, so for me it’s all about representing the creations and their makers in a genuine way that feels intentional and refined. These curated gifts are our way of representing the best of New Zealand self-care, which is why it’s only natural we do that in a sustainable way.
Sustainable packaging choices
Right now, we’re doing what we can to reduce our carbon footprint and leave the world a better place than we found it.
All our kraft boxes are New Zealand made and 100% recyclable, and our gift bags are made from hemp or organic cotton. Our paper cards are made from 100% recycled paper so are compostable and recyclable; our stickers are printed using soy-based inks and on FSC certified acid-free paper; our mailers and shipping labels are home compostable, and we’re making an annual donation to the Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project to help reduce our environmental impact.
That being said, we know there’s always more you can do, and we’re always looking for ways that we can improve. Our goal is to offset our carbon emissions and ultimately become a carbon positive company; to increase the recycled content of our packaging; and to offer recycling options for any packaging that cannot be curbside recycled. Sustainable packaging is not always as black and white as it seems, and can often mean making difficult choices - for example, choosing between products with lower carbon emissions or higher recycled content. We always try to look at the whole picture in times like these. It won’t be perfect, but you can be sure that all things have been considered.
