For the second week of Black History Month, we focused on sharing Black-owned or Black-founded businesses! Here is the list of all the brands we shared this week. From Valentine's Day treats, to sustainable home goods!

Valentine's Day

  1. Big Man Bakes: Started by a physician in training, William Brown began selling his cakes to colleagues at the hospital. What started as a hobby quickly turned into a full-blown business, with his cupcakes receiving a notable reputation throughout Hollywood and the LA-area!

Cosmetics

  1. Golde: Not traditional cosmetics, Golde has beauty face masks, but also an array of wellness products for healthy skin! They have a strong footing in beauty from within, taking care of your body shows on the outside.

  2. PLANT Apothecary: Certified organic cleansers, shower gels, masks, and more that offer the ultimate in clean skincare with ZERO synthetic nasties or animal-derived ingredients — and everything is gentle on both your skin and the environment. Including the packaging.

  3. Briogeo: A refreshing deviation from a market saturated with products backed by big-name celebrity stylists and deep-pocketed corporations, Briogeo takes it back to basics, offering a high-performance, hair care collection that is naturally based, yet performance driven to provide visible results.

Jewelry

  1. Talley & Twine: The brand was created after realizing that most watch companies just emulated the most popular brands. Their goal was to create a quality, detailed, attention-grabbing timepiece that didn't cost $1000 or more. Quality, aesthetically-pleasing watches that resist the status quo.

  2. Third Crown: Everyday statement pieces! The designers fuse their love of geometric shapes with the details found in their architectural surroundings to create men's and women's jewelry pieces.

  3. Jam + Rico: Designed to bring joy to the wearer and evoke confidence and beauty to each individual. The designer took inspiration from her ancestral background, being from Jamaica and Puerto Rico. That's also the inspiration for the name!

Home Goods

  1. Jungalow: They incorporate natural, recycled, recyclable, and compostable materials in their home goods!

  2. Eva Sonaike: All things textile design! From lamp shades, to makeup bags, the designer utilizes African designed in modern and contemporary ways

Free For All!

  1. Little Nomad: Starting as a line of fresh, modern, gender neutral children's graphic tees inspired by a sense of humor, curiosity, and hip hop culture. It then grew into a full shop that is dedicated to sourcing engaging and meaningful goods for your little ones.
