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.

Sunny statement prints for every room

“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.
