It all started with the wallet of Lewis's grandfather, stamped '1943'. His grandmother said "We couldn't afford to buy cheap, we bought things that lasted". From this, Lewis started his journey in craftsmanship, natural materials research and the establishment of MadeByNative soon after. Founded on an appreciation and love for the classically designed, they have a desire to create and curate lasting products that improve with age. They take the best skills, craft and tried and tested methods from around the world to produce effects that reflect harmony, beauty and quality.
