24 Amazing Black Owned Handbag Companies To Support This Holiday Season (Updated)

Edas

EDAS was created from an innovative standpoint, initially focusing on sustainability while using unusual home-goods and refurbished elements. Through the maturity of the brand, EDAS now delivers feminine and staple accessories, accommodating the everyday, eclectic woman.  We create each piece of jewelry by hand, and we take pride in seeing the hands of the craftsman within our pieces. Our signature is making each item one of a kind, and uniquely tailored to whoever chooses to wear it.

Sade Mims, head designer, has a strong interest in designing, creative directing, producing, event planning and writing. Incorporating each of these skills to produce quality work within her own designs, artwork and home accents. Each piece is made to be worn alone or paired, giving you a sense of customization and contrast. We strive to make women feel beautiful, one accessory at a time.


SHEKUDO

Shekudo, founded in Sydney Australia, began as a womens clothing brand -drawing on heritage, life experiences and a wearable art aesthetic.

Now under the sole creative direction of Akudo Iheakanwa, the brand relaunched into footwear and accessories moving its base across the Indian Ocean to commence production in Lagos, Nigeria. With this move, the brand hoped to shed more light on the local artisan and craftsmanship scene whilst integrating some of the age old techniques and overlooked local resources into its own contemporary aesthetic. Shekudo has gone from a team of 4 to 14 artisans and master craftsmen in just over a year. 


Mifland

Mifland Leather Goods is an American based mixed accessory goods company with a modern utilitarian approach. Through founder and brand director Tobi Egberongbe’s previous experiences and affinity to design, photography, architecture, contemporary furniture, a brand was created. Mifland was formed with these ideals and rhetoric in mind. All pieces are designed with form and function as the most important requirement. The collections are defined by Miflands signature architectural inspired bold design and attention to detail, with an emphasis on durability and an unique use of colors and heavyweight leather. The Mifland collections cover men’s and women’s  small and large accessories. Mifland is based within a studio warehouse building in Atlanta, Georgia. Along this journey it has often been necessary to look back in order to continue creating, we believe this is the most authentic way to stay consistent and grow. 


Peju Obasa

Peju Obasa is a Womenswear Knitwear Designer based in London. Her work is rich in colour and texture, embracing printing /dyeing and tenacious knitting techniques to create innovative pieces. Her vibrant Nigerian roots means that she is continually exploring old traditions and then turning them into the unexpected. Starting from a strand of yarn and ending with beautiful handmade piece. Taking inspiration from her curiosity travels and everything from the food she enjoys to cook to the colourful building facades on random streets.


Kayadua

KAYADUA is a Ghanaian based fashion brand founded in 2018 by Eyiwaa Agyekumhene. Eyiwaa graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Ghana in 2017, where she studied Integrated Rural Arts and Industry, majoring in Fiber and Fabrics. She grew up with her grandmothers, who inspired her with their way of living and ability to make interesting fashion items with their hands out of natural talent. She says, “ The fact that they were not taught these things but could make them really grew my interest. They also had the habit of buying unique fashion items when I was little. After 2 decades of these items being with us, they are still in great shape, unique and still in fashion. The kind of feeling I experience having the pieces that were theirs with me now, is very special and makes me have great appreciation for the pieces and the designers who made them.”


Brother Vellies

Brother Vellies was founded in 2013 with the goal of keeping traditional African design practices, and techniques alive while also creating and sustaining artisanal jobs. Now handmade artisanally across the globe, Brother Vellies creates luxury accessories that celebrate cultural histories and timeless design.

Toronto-native and New York City-transplant, Creative Director and Founder Aurora James amassed an impressive resume of fashion industry experience prior to starting Brother Vellies. Her background in fashion, journalism, art, music, photography, and horticulture joins a forever-passion for artisanship, design, and humanitarianism to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces that will remain in your wardrobe forever.
