The Native State offers bold, fun and modern prints for your home, nursery or office. As a small business there is no big team of designers, no weekly board meeting, there is me - Frankie - the ‘I’ behind the ‘we’ . I am the print designer, the buyer, the packer, the delivery driver and customer service assistant amongst many things, thus allowing The Native State to provide a personal service which other bigger businesses can’t offer. Each order and customer is celebrated and cared about as if it/they were the first. Each print carefully considered and designed to reflect our mission and ethos. My mission you ask? To simply create wall art which is filled with good intentions, positive vibes and makes the world a little bit brighter.
Founded in 2012, The Native State started from a box room in a ground floor flat in Edinburgh. When the call of the Scottish countryside was too much, we (myself, husband and dog Shabba) moved to a small village just outside St Andrews in Fife. With the arrival of our daughter in 2016, The Native State moved to a garden studio where I happily sit today sharing space with my graphic designer husband, Hasta Inc.
Thanks for stopping by.
