Although AAPI Heritage Month has come to an end and I’m a tad late with this post, I still wanted to share some of my personal favorite AAPI small businesses that sell clothing, gifts, food, or other things you might love…
These clothes are SO cute. Great for your own kids and kids’ gifts!
Asian American Girl Club
A celebration for all Asian American girls (of all ages!)
I have been wearing this brand for almost a decade, and I love how easy they are to wear.
If you’re looking for a bright and colorful sustainable bring, I love Rujeta’s pieces.
If you want to try the softest clothes ever, try Corinne. The silhouettes are simple and chic with colors that go with everything.
These bags are the epitome of chic simplicity. Everything is well-designed and so, so functional.
As you may know, we partnered with CALPAK for a limited collection a few years ago, and I have love them ever since. They have fantastic luggage, but have also branched out to other storage solutions (like this trunk storage!).
Lo & Sons
I have loved this Catalina bag as my go-to weekender for almost a decade! It keeps your shoes separate from your clothes and is the perfect functional bag.
A Jar of Pickles
So so many cute gifts like plushies, pins, stickers, stationery, and more!
Carolyn’s cards, wrapping paper, and gift bags are my go-to for every single occasion.
You all know my favorite drink is boba tea. Now I can make it at home whenever I want!
I love these tea drops to enjoy and to gift. There’s no tea bag, just put the “drop” of tea in hot water, stir it good, and enjoy the delicious flavor.
I love the tools from MK. And how chic is their knife block that uses a magnet instead of slots to easily clean? Everything they have is thoughtfully designed like this.
Camp by Julia Wester
Oh Joy! Alum Julia has started a small business by ice-dying fabrics and textiles. Every piece is unique and special.
P.S. Top picture by Lily Glass from our Oh Joy! x ODells collection. Thanks for supporting me during AAPI month and all year round. (And if you get a piece of the collection, post and tag so I can see you!). I’m always sharing things created by BIPOC and would love to hear any of your favorites, too!
