Native New York was created in 2011 by three friends from Long Island, NY.
We began with designs that represented the place that raised us, driven by the desire to capture that New York lightning in a bottle-- which is one hell of a beast to tame.
Native New York Clothing is built to have a homegrown look and feel with designs that extend an experience, vision, and sense of being.
We are all a product of our environment, and that’s what Native means to us. In our travels, and through life, we adapt to new and different places, but we always bring that little bit of home with us. This is the foundation that fuels NativeNY’s ideology. It has become more than just a brand. It’s a frame of Mind. We call it a “Native State of Mind”.
The dream is to create something bigger than ourselves.
An idea that once started on a text message has become what you see today. The story behind the scenes isn’t a fairy tale, it took hard work and dedication to get us this far, but our hope is to relate, influence, and inspire our fans by putting out awesome designs on high quality garments. We continue as students of the industry, exploring and challenging ourselves to refine and redefine our image each and every day.
We are the brand, you are the lifestyle.
Find the Native in you.
About the "Crown" Logo.
The logo that started it all became a registered Trademark in 2012.
The symbolism behind the 7 spikes on the Crown represent the 5 boroughs and 2 counties of Long Island at a local level.
(Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Nassau, and Suffolk.)
World Wide they represent the 7 seas and the 7 continents.(derived from the true meaning of the Statue of Liberty’s Crown).
We built these elements into the logo to start locally and to expand World Wide.
