Native Eyewear visited mountain towns across the country, including outdoor meccas like Boulder and Bend, but it was the North Carolina hamlet of Brevard that won last year’s Locals Only Project. Each year, Native Eyewear selects the very best outdoor towns to highlight in their catalogs and to feature in special town-focused videos.

Native Eyewear spent a month in Brevard this summer where the brand worked with local folks to gather photos, interview the locals and to take breathtaking videos of the Great Smoky Mountains.  The footage was then captured in the 2014 Native catalog, on the Native website, and in an exclusive paperback publication created to celebrate Brevard’s outdoor culture and lifestyle.

Celebrate with Brevard and Native Eyewear on Saturday, February 8, from 6 – 10 p.m. at the Lumber Yard at 200 King Street in downtown. Native will show the video and debut and distribute the paperback at the party. Beverage and appetizers will be provided with tunes of the local band Spencer and the String Ticklers serving as the backdrop.
