Welcome to the hub for our favorite Black-owned businesses! Here at TME we have an ongoing commitment to highlighting more Black-owned businesses (read about the 15% Pledge and how we’re doing our part on our Black-Owned Business Directory).

Shop Our Favorite Black-Owned Brands & Retailers

On this page, we feature our monthly articles dedicated to Black-owned businesses, as well as our posts offering our reviews, gifts guides, try-on sessions and more. We also add Black-owned businesses in with our regular fare, so some of those posts may be sprinkled in as appropriate. Some of these brands and retailers are those we already know and love, and some were recommended to us by readers (thank you!!). Also, many of these are woman-owned and/or sustainable. BONUS.

If you wanna jump right into some of our posts, these stunning handbags by Black-owned brands and designers are a good place to start, or hello, look at this pretty earring roundup by Meredith. Gorg! If that’s not your cup of tea, there’s plenty more below. As we find ’em, more Black-owned businesses offering fashion, beauty and home will be featured, so definitely bookmark and check back. Our complete Black-Owned Business Directory is here. ps. additional recommendations are always welcome. (Click here to head back to our Shop Conscious Hub.)
