Happy New Year!
We hope you had a lovely time with your family over the Christmas break and that you got lots of nice gifts!...If you recieved a brandnative bag we are so pleased and hope you are loving it! (be sure to share a picture with us if you did)
If you didn't receieve a new mochila bag...now is the time to do it!
Throughout 2016 we launched lots of new products which we loved sharing with you! The work the women in the Colombian Wayuu produced is so beautifully designed that it seemed a shame not to create more beautiful items that are both beautiful as well as functional and long lasting!
NEW to 2017!!
This year we are launching a brand new bag that we think you will love!!
The Mochila Backpack!!
This backpack is made with the same skill and detail as the luxury mochila bag and has taken up to 6 weeks to make just one! With the added extra of 2 over the shoulder straps it is the perfect throw on and go bag for your work wardrobe or weekend adventures! We will be adding the new brandnative mochila backpacks to the website really soon so keep an eye out and invest in this one of a kind bag that not only looks great but also helps support the wayuu women in Colombia!
Wow!! What a year we have had here at brandnative!
It has been a fantastic year of growth in the company and we couldn't be happier! We could not have done it without the help and support of everyone we have connected with this year, and since the business started. We would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of our achievements and to thank you for all of your support and love over the year!!
This year I have been so grateful for the support I have had from my friends and family! I have been able to employ Rosie to help me within the business and even help me write this blog and we have become a little team. I also have to say a special thank you to my Children and husband who are always their to help me with everything from packing orders, driving me to different shows and fairs to help me set up... I couldn't have achieved all this success without them.
This year has also been a fantastic year of recognition in the Press for brandnative! We have been featured in so many different magazines and blogs all from people wanting to tell our unique story! Did you see our bags in Sainsbury's Magazine?! It was an exciting moment for us too! :)
Being featured in Vogue (the"fashion bible") is a massive achievement and what could be better than being featured 3 times, if you bought a copy and saw us there be sure to let us know as we love to receive feedback!
One of our favourite articles this year was also the editorial article The Oxford Times Magazine! The writer Maddy Biddulph perfect told the brandnative story and the story of my family life!! If you would like to read the article check out the About Us page!
We would also like to thank our Wholesale customers and retail stores, we were lucky enough to work with a wonderful store in Dubai who sell products from artisans across the world! We are really looking forward to working with them again next year and hope to add many more stores and companies to our stockist list. If you would like to become a wholesaler of brandnative products please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be happy to send you more information.
All that is left to say really is Merry Christmas everyone! May you have a wonderful Christmas full of colourful happiness and here is to a great 2017! Thank you for loving brandnative and we can't wait to see you again next year!!
Scoop was an fantastic show where I met lots of amazing new people. One of those people was Claudia from Ta-Dah TV, she has a great energy and made me feel totally at ease when interviewing me about my company for her website. The website is described as "Your definitive magazine style internet channel for Europe, bringing you the latest in entertainment and lifestyle! Whatever is hot and happening – we’ll cover it for you to have fun and join in!" and features a great selection of fashion, music and entertainment articles and images.
It's great to be able to showcase brandnative to the fashion world and share what our mission is for the brand!
I hope you enjoy the video!
Following the success at Scoop I have had another busy month at brandnative. With lots of new order from shops around the country and Europe keen to have the fabulous handmade bags ready for summer. At the show I made some fantastic new connections, including the amazing Mith Magazine, a beautiful publication that features the latest fashion trends and editorials from across the world. This month brandnative have been featured alongside other presigious brands, showcasing our summer luxury collection. You can get your copy now at:

Another month and another great event that brandnative will be attending. I am very excited as this is the first time brandnative will be showcasing at this prestigious event. The Scoop event is described as "...a new edition of Scoop, filled with fresh talent, directional design and a hand-picked selection of the finest international collections." The event is held during fashion week from 21st - 23rd February.
I really enjoy being at the shows, seeing all my customers and meeting new people. I would love for you to come and visit the event,supporting brandnative and seeing the products in action.
Below are a few bags from my new collection that will be available to purchase at the event.
I think the event will be a great day out and I would love to see you there.
