American Native is a new company rooted in some old-fashioned ideas. We the founders, brothers Bobby and Clayton Chamberlain, were raised with a tradition of hard work and self-made success. Both of us have training in design, but we sought a more hands-on approach to creating beautiful things. A memorable road trip through the South in the fall of 2011 brought about a renewed sense of patriotism and a desire to make things the traditional way – by hand and heart with attention to quality.
In the months that followed, we began experimenting with leather and denim – the bricks and mortar of American style. We are inspired by American heritage and a longing to create tangible goods with quality, hard work, and integrity. We believe in manufacturing high-quality, US-Made products that wear well and develop beautifully with age. Quality over quantity is our mission, and we strive for artisanal production in everything we do. We are proud of the goods we produce, and utilize only the finest materials on our products – premium selvedge denim from Cone Mills, fine vegetable and chrome tanned leathers from US-tanneries, and other various textiles from quality domestic mills.
Today, we continue to explore new products and innovate our methods, all the while providing handmade goods of the highest quality and integrity, all made right here in America.
