A gentle man who spent his life walking the hills and forests with his love, Kath
My name is Felicity Stuart-Menteath, and I am the founder and namesake of Menteath. I come from a Scottish farming family that emigrated to New Zealand. We are a family of makers and crafts people. We grow, we make, and design.From an early age I started my humanitarian journey.
I was driven by an urge to help the lives of others in crisis. Everywhere I went, be it for humanitarian work or disaster relief, my heart broke at every injustice that crossed my path. Despite leading such a nomadic lifestyle for many years, each corner of this planet brought me into contact with new cultures and family rituals, which enriched both who I am today as well as providing invaluable international friends from whom my connection continues forever.Community is something fundamental to us all – strong connections form part of sustaining high well-being no matter where we may roam. Working abroad, I discovered a different kind of beauty that isn't tied to narrow conventions or appearances. Beauty is an expression of the soul, nurtured through love and connection with ourselves and those around us. It's only when we are joyful within that this happiness translates into our outward appearance - which is exactly why Menteath exists.
