Security

Is your site safe?

But our dedication to security does not stop there, we continuously monitor for updates for the various software we use and make it a top priority to install any security patches as soon as there available.

Comodo

What is SSL security?

Our website uses SSL security from start to finish. You may have noticed from that lock icon near our address in the URL bar. That means your browser has detected that you are browsing our SSL secure online shop.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. All data passed between the web server (us) and browsers (you) remain private and encrypted.

From the moment you landed on our site, to the moment you checkout, every interaction is encrypted and private.

How does SSL security work?

SSL certificates are issued by a certificate authority. This certificate authority will issue a certificate after it has confirmed the identity of the company applying for the certificate (that's us Native & Sewn). These certificates are embedded in what is known as the 'certificate store' in popular internet browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Where do you ship?

We ship worldwide. Refer to our Shipping page for more details.
