The most popular item, a miniskirt, features a head shot of the Prime Minster tiled several times and is sold for the reasonable price of $30. 

If clothing isn't the desired gift, the website also sells duvet covers, clocks and bags covered in the PM's face. 

"I created the original design when Ms Ardern was elected in October," Ms Stark told Fairfax.

"I don't have a New Zealand connection, just a Facebook feed that was full of people posting about Jacinda and lots of friends celebrating her election."

"Starkle" is an online store selling many variations of Jacinda Ardern merchandise.

She says sales have taken off "phenomenally" surpassing her seasonal merchandise, and working on the collection has helped her "better adjust to a Trump presidency".

"I was excited for New Zealand and wanted to celebrate her election."

According to the item's description, all the materials are "ethically" sourced.
