The Katipo Story

We create superior products for tradies - from full tool belts, to pouches and accessories to improve your existing setup.

After struggling to find a belt in New Zealand that was fit-for-purpose (and a reasonable price) we decided to make our own. Once workmates started seeing the early models, they wanted one too - demand grew from there. In the early days, we took on ideas and feedback, using this to craft the base models we have today.

We know tradies rely on their tool belts through thick and thin, which is why we've designed our gear to be customizable and suit the way you want to build.

Our belts are hand made in Christchurch, New Zealand, using premium and hard wearing materials. It's important to us that the belts also look cool. Our signature red stud mimics the markings on a Katipo spider.
