Below, we’re shining the spotlight on 9 popular Black-owned fashion brands that you can scoop up from Amazon today.
1. Cloth & Cord
Founded in 2015 by designer Ellana Kone’, Cloth & Cord sells jewelry, apparel, and accessories that the brand terms “wearable art.” From knotted headbands to some of the most dynamic statement necklaces we’ve seen in years, Cloth & Cord is leading the charge in producing jewelry that celebrates the diversity, brilliance, and beauty of the pan-African diaspora. It’s hard to pick just one of their creations, but if we had to choose, it would either be the Queen Africa Print Bib Necklace or the African Maroon, Brown Wood Bead and kobo bead Necklace. The necklaces make clever use of wood beads and Ankara-print textiles without sacrificing style.
2. Grace Eleyae
Grace Eleyae experienced the negative effects of chemical straightening firsthand, and established her eponymous brand of headcovers designed to enhance hair growth, hydration, and style. Grace Eleyae carries satin-lined beanies, baseball caps, turbans, and more—ready for all of your protective styles.
