Based in Los Angeles, but born in Noosa, Australia, Natalie Martin founded her namesake company in 2011 inspired by all things summertime, understated glamour, and endless adventures. Natalie partners with artisans in Bali to create one of a kind prints using traditional batik printing techniques. Each piece is handmade in Bali with fabrics carefully selected to invoke a feminine effortlessness that is also subtly luxurious. Made in small batches by an exclusive factory, the handmade nature adds charm and uniqueness to every garment meant to be treasured for a lifetime.
