Tell us about your business.Native State is inspired by simple things that are created in the spirit of true craftsmanship and passion. We are children of the mountains and much of our work aims at capturing the essence of the Northern California wild. Among the pine trees and the winding river bed, our products are lovingly and carefully handcrafted with genuinely natural ingredients.
What makes your business stand out?We are named for our desire to find ourselves again in a state of nature. To live as our ancestors once did: purely, mindfully, and simply. We use glass bottles, recycled packaging materials, and sustainably sourced and harvested ingredients in each of our creations.
What's the best business advice you've received?"Never tell me the odds" -Han Solo, Starfighter
