Some of the story

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.

Are your products ethically green?

Yes, absolutely!

We use certified eco friendly foreground inks that are water based and free of toxic chemicals, lead and other heavy metals.

Our inks are safe for our environment.

Both the inks and the base colour are lightfast.
We use two papers – A traditional 100% organic paper and a synthetic and natural blend paper. This second paper has no synthetic nasties and is made from a combination of natural pulp paper from green certified pulp forestries and recycled post-consumer waste.

How to I go about installing wallpaper?

It is not an easy task to hang wallpaper. We highly recommend using a professional wallpaper installer rather than doing it yourself. We do not replace wallpaper that has been damaged due to bad installation practices.

What are the characteristics of a handmade product?

The imperfections in a handcrafted product are what make it perfect and assure a lovely natural individuality within the design.

How do I care for my wallpaper and fabric?

All our wallpapers are wipeable and can be cleaned with a non-abrasive cloth and warm soapy water.

Our hand screened fabrics should be washed on a cold hand wash and hung inside out or in the shade to dry.

 

 

Besides wallpaper, what other products do you make?

At the moment we have a gorgeous limited edition quilts that you can find in our Store.

We also whimsical artwork for children in our Store.

For your wild and free offspring you can find our Ted tents in Store too!

 

Returns?

Please choose carefully as we have a no returns policy.
