Supporting our Black Sisters and Brothers as well as Black-owned businesses year round is something we should all be doing or striving towards. But, because February is Black History Month, we decided to share some fabulous Black-owned businesses you may want to consider supporting with your economic and social currency! The ones we are featuring below are, of course, Black-owned, but some are also Black Muslim-owned businesses.
Glass Skin Co.
Founder Tranice' Warner developed Glass Skin Co. in response to the difficulty she faced finding products made for “women who look like her” and, in particular, with dry skin. The line is ethical and sustainable, limits single-use packaging and is 100 percent vegan and cruelty free.
Khadega Mohammed
Jewelry brand Gemified was created in the summer of 2020 by two college students - Khadega Mohammed and Julia Wicker (both in Michigan) - with a passion for unique and beautiful jewelry pieces. Their collection is small but developed with love and an eye for beautiful yet affordable pieces.
Jamillah Bridal
Jamillah Abdullah has more than 20 years of experience empowering modest brides via beautiful bespoke bridal designs from Jamillah Bridal. She is devoted to making modest brides’ dreams come true on their big day, and her attention to detail is exquisite.
Covered Bliss
Black and Muslim-owned modest fashion brand Covered Bliss boasts a wide variety of modest clothing, swimsuits, special occasion dresses and even abayas! Founder Sara Sheikh aims to empower and uplift Muslim women by making modest fashion accessible.
Arewa Label
Arewa is known for its unique and beautiful high-quality accessories. This Black-owned shop sells an assortment of square scarves and earrings inspired by the Swahili language and culture.
CMB Styling
Hakeemah Cummings
From interviews with CBS and PBS to multiple online publication features (including The Haute Take), stylist Hakeemah Cummings and CMB Styling offers personal, bridal, runway and photoshoot styling services to help achieve modest yet fashionable looks for clients.

This collection of incredible Black-owned businesses does not even begin to scratch the surface of the many amazing ones out there.
