URBAN NATIVE is a cross-culture lifestyle brand that brings worldwide fashion views into modern-urban context. Our lead designer and CEO, Erik Wise, has spent the last 20+ years traveling throughout Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America, experiencing the sights, sounds, tastes and vibrancy of exciting cultures that rarely make it into western fashion or homes.
Our goal is to shrink the world just a little; allowing you to enjoy a sampling of what many cultures have to offer. Whether its through fashion, skin care, dining, travel, decor or styling, we want this amazing world to come alive for everyone.
URBAN NATIVE maintains a fashion house in Lagos, Nigeria and Florida, USA. Many of our textiles are produced and/or sourced from Africa or indigenous regions of the world and are 100% authentic. We purchase our materials direct from independent small business individuals in their respective communities. So when you buy with URBAN NATIVE, you can be certain that you are giving back directly to those who need it the most. Since of most the materials we use are "limited-run," they may sell out quickly on our website and int he boutique. If you see a style that you like, we can generally get something similar for your custom couture piece. Our goal is to bring you the highest quality garments and products that you may never see again.
Thank you for becoming part of our URBAN NATIVE family.
NABATA NDI ENYI!!
