Did you know there were Black-owned handbag brands? As a Black woman, even I’ve been sleeping on the fashion accessories designed by my own people. And despite the stressful time for Black people and business owners, Twitter discovered (and made viral) an entire thread of Black-owned handbag brands. I’m proud to say many of these brands’ websites have even crashed in the process since the thread was posted.
User Weighted Blanket Stan has amassed over 85,000 likes on Twitter and more than 39,000 retweets since spilling the deets. Oh, and the canvas purses, backpacks and bucket bags are coming in clutch. In other words, they’re truly a sight to see. From the high-end Telfar bags (which are all now sold-out) to the beautifully beaded Lupita Bag from Jumzs, there’s something more unique about these Black-owned bag brands than the mainstream luxury designer bags.
It’s no secret that Black designers don’t get the same recognition as white designers. People, like Kerby Jean Raymond of Pyer Moss, have been speaking up against discrimination in fashion for years. And while the opportunities for visibility and funding aren’t the same for Black designers, their products still have stellar quality.
If you’re looking to support Black-owned handbag brands on a budget, there are a ton of cute totes from Lovely Earthlings. But, if you want something high-end and don’t mind shelling out a few extra dollars, brands like Tote and Carry and Edas stock some seriously luxe-looking bags. Take a peek for yourself at some of these cute Black-owned bag designs that are already running out fast.
