Rug-Bee was inspired by the 2011 All Blacks™ win of the Rugby World Cup (host nation - New Zealand), and was designed for the 2015 event (host nation - England) when they won again. Will 2019 make it 3-in-a-row?
Rug-Bee is one of the ‘cousins’ of the Kiwiana pattern Wanna-Bee , and is a tribute to New Zealand Rugby and the iconic Buzzy Bee™ which has been sold in New Zealand since the early 1940’s.
Approximately 8 inches long and 5.5 inches high. Tension and gauge isn’t important.
The success of the original Wanna-Bee pattern has inspired a collection of patterns of ‘cousins’ including: US Bee - Stars and Stripes G-Bees - Union Jack, England and Scotland flags O Canada - Canadian flag Thistle - a wee Scottish heather bee
And a number of bespoke one-offs: A S Bee (to represent ASB Bank in New Zealand) Wimblebee - for Wimbledon DIversibee - for Gay Pride Irn Bru Bee - a tribute to Scotland’s Irn Bru drink TIffany - a tribute to Tiffany & Co
