Chunky was launched in Queenstown, New Zealand in 2017. Their mission was to fill a gap in the market with sustainable stainless steel drink bottles that also showcased local artist’s work. They started off by collaborating with two artists to create four designs and sold out of just one Queenstown store. By 2018 they had 12 artists, 30 designs and were fast becoming a NZ household drink bottle name. Today they have 46 designs by 20 international artists. Chunky focuses solely on emerging artists, helping them get their name out there to gain the exposure they deserve.
