Black-Owned Businesses We're Shopping

2020-06-25

At Margaux HQ, our team is obsessed with great products—and great brands. But as countless conversations in recent weeks have revealed, Black-owned businesses receive less funding and shelf space than other businesses. 

We believe that even small actions or decisions, like supporting Black-owned businesses in everyday purchases, can contribute to changing those inequities. So, our most shopping-savvy team members are sharing products from Black-owned brands and businesses that they've both followed for years and recently discovered. 

We love these products and think you will too.

Golde

"I stocked up on the matcha and superfood latte blends. Working from home, I have less temptation to buy coffee and lunch out, so I treat myself to loads of matcha and latte mixes so I can make everything myself. It doesn't hurt that Golde's packaging looks pretty in our pantry either." - Gavriella, Operations

"I love their colorful, light, and airy dresses, the giveback element—a percentage of all sales goes to help women in Africa find better healthcare, education, and job opportunities—and the story of how supermodel Liya Kebede founded the brand." - Lindsay, Retail

LaPierre

"Having become truly obsessed with painting my nails during the pandemic, I found LaPierre Cosmetics to expand my polish collection. Their nail polishes are all cruelty-free and non-toxic and come in such good colors, from chic neutrals to brighter-than-brights. They're based in New Orleans, but I've found their shipping is quite speedy." - Gavriella, Operations
