Born from the combined love of being creative through sewing and rock climbing Nativa Handmade
is based in Brisbane in a bright and leafy home-studio. Demand depending, we go from one person
running the show to a small collective of women with a common passion for sewing, inspired to keep
alive the skills passed on to us from our mothers and grandmothers.

Our main creation is the funky-looking chalk bags, but sometimes fashion and random items will also
pop-up online. Custom items are also possible upon consultation.

Community and footprint

We love creating opportunities to collaborate with our bright community while being conscious of
our footprint. From the beautifully created branding by the local creative Paola Castro, to the odd
shaped labels sourced from Reverse Garbage that are attached to the chalk bags by strips of
leftover fabric, the local and sustainable approach are on the details.

Accumulated fabric remnants will become yoga bolsters filling. The chalk bags design was created to
generate minimum fabric waste. Sometimes a funky-hidden-gem fabric is found in second-hand
stores and made into an even more special small batch. While there are many opportunities, not all
are perfect and that is why we keep an eye on opportunities to create improved solutions and to
constantly connect with the community.
