I’ve had lots of emails from Black-owned art prints businesses after publishing 11 brilliant black-owned UK businesses on Etsy so here are even more brilliant Black-owned small businesses!
These businesses are all based in the UK so you can treat yourself or buy a gift for a loved one! Supporting Black businesses in the UK is an ethical way to shop as it helps to close the racial wealth gap, improves local economies, makes jobs, divests from exploitative companies and celebrates Black culture.
The first official Black Pound Day was on the 27th June but this list contains everything from jewellery to body scrub, showing that any day can be Black Pound Day.
