Real Customer Reviews


June 2018   

I am so happy with my purchase from Native & Sewn! I needed to order 7 tops for my groomsmen and Emmanuel help me every step of the way. My future husband and I will definitely be ordering from Native and Sewn again.

Very professional and personable. They stayed in constant communication with me and when I received the final project I was speechless. They did such a beautiful job on my wedding dress. I love it
