Wearing its heart on its sleeve this month for Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the luxury leather goods brand House of Native.

Ahead of its first boutique opening in the UAE, along Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Road next Tuesday (November 1), the all-natural design house has chosen four breast cancer survivors to be its glamorous ambassadors this October.

They include Daniella Russell from the UK, Elaine Superio from the Philippines, Priyanka Sunita from India and Palestinian-Jordanian, Hana Abu Lughod.

Shedding light on the challenges the women have faced in recent years, Native has produced a series of short vignettes about them for their fall/winter campaign. Go to www.nativedubaionline.com to see the latest collection of bags by the brand, entitled ‘Beauty Beyond the Obvious’ (prices upon application).

Native uses leather – including camel, ostrich and python skin - sourced from ethical suppliers for its range of bags, shoes and leather accessories. Many pieces within the label’s seasonal ranges are biodegradable and metal/chrome free.
