Founder Kate Swinson combines a love of nature and drawing with a passion for creating environmentally friendly artisan design that explores and celebrates nature whilst treading lightly on our planet.

The NATIVE SWINSON aesthetic is born from the detailed line drawing of Kate’s contemporary art practice and it grows organically from the memory of a rural childhood roaming untethered through the Australian landscape, climbing up trees and floating down rivers. These memories are often triggered by the adventures Kate now has with her own tribe with whom she shares her love of the natural world. Her designs carry a personal story that evokes a sense of uniqueness and retains the hand of the maker.

The ethics of NATIVE SWINSON have driven Kate to produce her designs locally, hand screening using non-toxic inks and eco-friendly papers.  She is always focused on the exacting artisan process of making a beautifully handcrafted high quality product.
