I’m Natalie, founder and designer of NUBIA NATALIE, an experienced individual, passionate about producing quality activewear with a social impact.

I am from Los Angeles, California, and hold two bachelor’s degrees: Fashion Merchandising (BA) and Business Administration (BS), both of which have fueled my creative and entrepreneurial spirit. After being out of school for six years, I continued my education and earned a master’s degree (MBA) in Finance while being fully employed by a Fortune 500 Company.

I officially founded NUBIA NATALIE in 2017, because I wanted to build a brand to champion artisans’ artwork and provide a socially-conscious active wear lifestyle brand. I felt the need to help our customers make healthier and eco-friendlier choices, without sacrificing quality for affordability. Thanks to my wide network of partners and collaboration with artisans around the globe, I was able to print the art on recycled and eco fabrics in an environmentally-friendly way.

I believe that diversity is to be celebrated and I pride myself in working closely with traditional ethnic minority tribes in rural Mexico. I combine my knowledge about indigenous crafts with my experience in the industry and constantly works towards making the fashion industry more sustainable.

My biggest reward from NUBIA NATALIE is being able to be the voice of artisans and the community we work with, and champion the creative spirit. By purchasing NUBIA NATALIE, customers are directly impacting artisans to maintain their traditions and helping them become more financially independent.

I'm humbled that you’ve stopped by and I hope you will follow along by joining the NUBIA NATALIE newsletter to receive updates on posts and new products.
