Native & Co is an independent homeware and lifestyle shop that quietly opened the doors of their Notting Hill shop in December 2014. Founded by two product designers, Taiwan born Sharon Jo-Yun Hung and British-Japanese Chris Yoshiro Green, the shop specialises in craft based home products that are predominantly sourced locally in Japan and Taiwan. There are no shortage of independent craft shops in the UK, but it’s Native & Co’s combination of artisan Japanese products coupled with rare Taiwanese finds that make it unique.

Working with small suppliers, specialist workshops and local craftsmen, Native & Co seek out simple pieces of a discrete nature, with beautiful subtle details. Objects with purity, where the material’s natural beauty is left untarnished. The carefully edited collections that span Dining & Kitchen, Household, Cushions & Throws and Bags & Accessories, compliment an interior without dominating it.

With a background in product design, Hung & Green naturally wanted to personally create every aspect of the shop, from the graphic design and photography to the shop interior and furniture, the latter of which Green crafted himself. In doing so they have created a brand and environment that is very much their own and one that sits comfortably alongside their curated lifestyle products/products ranges. It’s these small, well thought out touches and attention to detail that makes Native & Co stand out.
