Our Story

Bourne Southern is a family owned and operated apparel brand based in Newton, North Carolina.  We specialize in designing and making faith-based inspirational
apparel for women.  Each unique design is inspired by God's Word and designed to encourage, inspire, and uplift the woman wearing it.  All of our original designs are developed and printed in house.

Bourne Southern originated as a hobby for me (Megan) back in 2013, where I began making small wood signs and other home decor to decorate our house.  Family and friends began requesting pieces, and before I knew it, I was selling to hundreds of people on Etsy.

In 2014, my husband Anthony began helping me as my "hobby" continued to grow.  In late 2014, we began to pray about the opportunity of running Bourne Southern as our full-time family business.  In March of 2015, Anthony left his job to pursue Bourne Southern full-time, making wood signs, decor, and eventually apparel with our designs.

Since March of 2016, we have continued to grow our business while seeking the Lord's guidance along the way.  In April of 2017, we decided to focus solely on apparel and haven't looked back. We recently started offering our items wholesale as well!

All of our products continue to be designed and printed by hand in the Bourne Southern workshop.  
We are truly passionate about what we do and find such joy in bringing hope and encouragement to those who shop with us.  Bourne Southern isn't just a brand, its a way for us to impact the lives of others and share the love of Christ!


Anthony and I are both born again believers who have been married for over 6 years.  We have four wild and precious boys aged 5 and under; Jace, Evan, Lane, and Rhys.  We enjoy spending time with family, being outdoors, fishing, home improvement projects and serving the Lord!
