We are made to move. Designed to roam toward the wonder of new and unknown spaces. In my opinion, when its time to travel there is nothing quite like the feeling of a freshly packed vehicle, a full tank of gas, and the limitless wonder and excitement of what memories lay down the path of the open road. However, there has been a change in the beloved roadtrip over the past several years. An unfortunate shift brought upon us by our ever-growing dependence of technological “convenience.” I am sad to say that this change has happened to one of my favorite components of the roadtrip: the map. Now, I’m not referring to a downloaded app that pops up on the few square inches of a computer screen you hold in the palm of your hand. I’m referring to the oversized, worn out, ripped edged, coffee stained, collection of printed lines, dots, dashes, and contours that all come together to make up a representation of the landscape you are about to enter: the paper map, or in book form the atlas.
we are in tune with the truth that every individual carries the place of their roots with them throughout life. it is our mission to provide high quality, relaxed, and stylish apparel featuring original designs inspired by that place called “home”. we respect the strength in the simplicity of statement, the freedom of individualistic expression, and the unassuming confidence of cool. it is a simple fact: few are adventurers, some are explorers, many are wanderers, all are nativ.
nativ was born on the roads and trails of America and through the realization that wherever one may roam the place of your roots is with you always. the place that’s home is more than a location but also a spirit that is a part of who you are, how you see the world, and encourages exploration.
