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 rosie.brandnative@gmail.com 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!!

A Summer of Colour July 13 2016, 1 Comment

Happy Holidays everyone! 

We know it's nearly time that the kids are off school and you will hopefully be off on a nice relaxing break away! We would love to know where you are off too and be sure to check out the SALE on our website to take one of our bags with you! 

We can't believe it is July already! Last month was a great month for brandnative. We attended 3 different events including Spirit of Summer in London. It was a brilliant event and we met so many fantastic people who bought our bags. If you were one of them, be sure to share your photos of you out and about with our handmade products. Here are a few we have already received! We love to see the individual style that people have when wearing our bags! 

Further to the wonderful events we were also over the moon to receive our copy of Vogue Magazine through the door, which we are delighted to be included in for the 3rd time! It is absolutely fantastic to be featured in such a prestigious publication and we love the bag they chose to include. Make sure you pick up your copy today!

FROM THERE TO HERE : Brandnative’s JOURNEY March 03 2015, 0 Comments


In March this year I went back for another visit and to collect some large orders from some of the communities and place new orders.

 


Get behind Wayúu women January 09 2015, 0 Comments

The Wayuu women are masters of their craft, weaving beautiful bags in vibrant colours. Crafting Mochila bags gives women autonomy and independence. Some share their husbands with other women, and while their husband’s income pays for food, the weaving and sale of a Mochila bag will be money that belongs to her, to manage as she sees fit. By purchasing a Mochila bag from Brand Native, you are sending money directly to the Wayuu who made it.
