Purveyor, Anette Drewery passionately hand-picks her products from top-quality suppliers around the world. She has now moved into the newly-renovated former post office building at 199 High Street. “The Old Meadery, was a destination place. We didn’t want a new build, we wanted something with a bit of history and charm,” she says.

From the moment you walk into Molto Bella, the soft, elegant tones and gorgeous smells instantly transport you to another place. Anette is passionate about natural fibres (mainly linens and silks) and offers an exclusive range of “stylish, feminine and comfortable” clothing for women of all shapes and sizes which she has found in Italy, along the Amalfi Coast.

“We have a stunning handmade and crafted linen range made in the traditional old fashioned and labour intensive way, but the results are astoundingly beautiful and no two garments are the same and exclusive to Molto Bella.” She also sources products from Turkey, Lithuania and Spain. Alongside the Italian linen range, take your time to peruse the magazines from Denmark, Turkish towels, French soaps and fragrances, Belgian tapestry cushions, gorgeous rugs, and sustainable carry bags.


This store certainly has the wow factor. From the moment you enter you can see why this is a must visit store! Find it at 199 High Street Rangiora, phone 03 313 1366 or visit
