Red floral bathing suit

Christchurch-based company, Lane Walker Rudkin, produced their first garment (woollen underwear) under the Canterbury label in the 1920s. During the 20th century, the label grew to include swimwear and sports apparel. When Lane Walker Rudkin was placed into receivership in 2009, the label was purchased by a British company.
