There’s plenty that drives us to Etsy on a weekly (if not daily) basis; from its seemingly endless assortment of both vintage and handmade goods to its ability to directly fund and communicate with the makers behind them. The latter reason significantly outweighs the former in motivating us to shop the site in support of Black artists, designers, and craftspeople.
As we look to direct our spending towards the community’s economic empowerment, frequenting Black-owned Etsy shops will put funds back into the very hands that made the item we’re buying — whether that’s a pair of chunky polymer-clay earrings that look like a work of modern art or a romantic mini-dress perfect for a courthouse-couture wedding.
Ahead, we’ve lined up a selection of the many Black makers who sell their wares through Etsy. Please share your favorite shops in the comments below.
