"I founded Native Trails with a dream of combining artisan heritage, innovative design, and sustainable materials. This is a passion I gratefully live out every day."
~Naomi Neilson Howard, Founder/CEO
Blazing a Native Trail
In 1996, Naomi founded Native Trails, using her passion for artisan tradition, sustainability, and fair trade practices to bring the work of undiscovered artisans from central Mexico first to central California and then on to living spaces worldwide. Combining the artisans' age-old traditions with contemporary design and sustainable materials, Naomi broke new ground with Native Trails iconic copper sinks, and helped to introduce copper as a mainstay material for the kitchen and bath.
Artisan Crafted from Raw Materials
Under Naomi's effervescent leadership, Native Trails continues to innovate with their creative designs, utilizing natural materials like stone, reclaimed wood, bamboo, and recycled copper.
Blazing New Trails
Today, Native Trails leads the industry in artisan crafted, sustainable products for kitchen and bath design; and continue to find new trails to be forged. Naomi and her team travel throughout the world, researching new offerings and searching out undiscovered artisans who can bring life to Native Trails' innovative designs, including handmade decor, gifts, and lifestyle products for the home and office, available through NativeTrailsLifestyle.com.
