Etsy is Celebrating Black History Month

Etsy is proud to be a place where Black community thrives—a place where Black makers and curators showcase their wonderful wares, and where shoppers from all backgrounds come together to support Black-owned businesses. Etsy is featuring stories that bring just a few inspiring examples of Black creativity and connection to life—from an interview with a pair of passionate vintage clothing curators in Houston to an introduction to a legendary community of quilters in rural Alabama. 

You’ll find the following:

Favorite-worthy 5-star finds

A culinary keepsake to cherish. A new go-to necklace. An extra-motivating journal. The Etsy community can’t get enough of these standout items from Black-owned shops—and it’s not hard to see why.

“Everything I create is based on my emotions at the time,” says Miami-based illustrator Melissa Koby. “There’s meaning behind every drawing.” So it’s no surprise that her quarantine art-making is striking a chord with connection-seeking customers around the globe.

 Colorful quilts brimming with history

The prized patchwork pieces from this community of Alabama quilting legends are the products of innovation, ingenuity, and inspiration—and now they’re available for purchase online for the very first time.

 Plus: a video interview you won’t want to miss

Follow along as everyone’s number one Trend Expert, Etsy’s own Dayna Isom Johnson, talks 70’s silhouettes, tie-dyeing tips, and so much more with the ultra-stylish curator couple behind vintage apparel shop MAW SUPPLY. Wardrobe inspo, coming right up!
