Order takeout from your favorite local restaurant and join us this Friday from 12 – 12:30 PM on Facebook LIVE for a stimulating conversation with SLO Chamber President/CEO, Jim Dantona and Native Trails Founder, Naomi Neilson!
About this week’s guest: Naomi Neilson founded Native Trails in 1996 while attending Cal Poly, and is best known for introducing the company’s iconic copper basins to the world. In her early travels Naomi enjoyed bringing back local artisan work for others to enjoy. In her pursuit to find innovative designs, artistry, and sustainable practices, she began providing indigenous craftspeople and fairs with design and operational guidance, and initiatives for reliable revenue streams for their local economies while introducing the artisans’ work into homes throughout the world.
Today, Native Trails’ artisans construct their products in facilities located in Vietnam, Mexico, and the United States using fair and sustainable practices. Native Trails, a certified B Corp company, ships its award-winning products to more than 1,300 showrooms across the U.S. and Canada and delivers products for hospitality projects around the globe.
