About Us


Remember this iconic photo of Buffalo? 

Well, if you don’t already know, this was not a picture of Buffalo and in fact, one of New York City. After exposing the truth on Channel 7, Alex figured, “Why not create a new iconic picture?”… and that is exactly what he did. 

See this business started from a simple photograph of our iconic Main St. and evolved into what it is today - a vendor at Wegmans, local shops throughout Buffalo, and an e-commerce apparel site. We want to extend our gratitude to our fellow Buffalonians who made this company what it is today!

We are a Buffalo couple that have a passion for our hometown. We love our city. We are born and raised in Buffalo and that's what drives our passion. Born and Raised is more than just a novelty gift company. Through our products, we want to invoke a deep sense of love and pride for the place we call home. We want our locally made products to be little reminders of times shared together with family and friends. Buffalo will forever hold a special place in our hearts. 

-Alex & Brittany
