No other apparel company in the world has the same singular focus on rugby as Canterbury of New Zealand.Â Canterbury of New Zealand built its foundations in club rugby, the grass roots of the game, and while it outfits high profile international sides such as Australia, Scotland, Ireland, Fiji and Japan it has never lost sight of its beginnings.
It was a chance request by a friend of one of the company’s founders that led the company into manufacturing rugby jerseys. The avid rugby player wanted to see if the company could produce a playing jersey that would not only be tough enough to withstand the rigours of the game, but would also be comfortable and stylish.
In fact, Canterbury of New Zealand made its jerseys so well that word soon leaked out to other rugby playing nations. Canterbury of New Zealand jerseys found their way all over the world including North America where they became just as desirable off the field as on.
