Etsy is the Amazon of supplies, vintage and handmade materials. Etsy’s homepage boasts about its ability to connect you directly with artisans from all around the world, and it’s true; toddler’s clothing from Italy, jewelry from California, dresses from Turkey aren’t even the half of it.
An amazing thing about Etsy is its community of black-owned shops that produce gorgeous art, jewelry, clothing, and more. Here are some of the coolest black-owned Etsy shops to spend with, in no particular order:
Bracelets, rings, necklaces with charms in the shape of the continent of Africa, as well as various words, countries from around the world and custom designs.
Original T-shirts made by a single mom in California.
Hand-crochetted unisex bow-ties, dreamcatcher-inspired earrings and necklaces.
Women & children’s apparel.
Clip on bow-ties & pocket squares, headwraps, turbans, men and women’s clothing.
Women’s African-print dresses.
Homemade and all-natural hair products.
