To make a local, sustainable product requires great materials, craft, and zero compromise… all of the stuff they teach you not to do in business school.
But those cost-first decisions that we’re supposed to make are also the ones damaging our planet, exploiting poorer nations, and generally messing things up for the next generation. So since we launched Ironclad Co., we’ve been doing our very best to produce locally manufactured, quality products that are less of a burden on the planet and better for our local communities.
The pandemic has been hard on all of us. And the majority of our suppliers and partners in New Zealand have either raised their prices, or plan to by 1 April 2022. We have done our very best to avoid following suit, but we’ve reached a point where we can no longer hold out.
As of 1 April 2022, we’ll be increasing many of our RRPs across our cast iron cookware and accessories.
In particular, our Legacy Pan will be going from $25 to $280 (NZD). Our accessories range and our bundles will see a slight price increase across the board. We’re telling our online community first so you can take advantage of the current pricing should you want to.
What makes Ironclad Co. Ironclad Co., is that we would rather make high quality products than high margins. That has always been our ethos and it always will.
Make some memories, and please remember to shop well - buy once.
