To celebrate National Black Business Month, Pinterest has launched a brand new Pinterest Shop collection featuring 20+ Black-owned fashion and beauty businesses with 600+ products. With searches for “Black-owned business” up 13x*, Pinterest is making it easier to discover and shop unique products from these mission-driven brands.
Visit the Pinterest Shop to find businesses like lemlem, Studio One Eighty Nine, Mahnal, The Folklore, Ceylon and Beauty Bakerie. Each product is a shoppable Product Pin that links directly to the respective store’s online checkout, so you can buy in a few clicks. To mark the launch, supermodel Liya Kebede has curated a board of her favorite picks from her sustainable fashion label, lemlem, with women's artisan-driven resort wear made in Africa.
