We are continually adding Black artists to our shop, and we created a guide to help you support Black artists and makers of Pittsburgh. In addition to the Black artists we have highlighted in the past, we are proud to also feature:
Florence of Djoi Designs creates handcrafted handbags and jewelry. Her process of creating is always evolving and she looks for ways to express individuality. Check out our collection of Djoi Designs jewelry here.

Atiya Jones of TWELVE/TWENTY STUDIO creates beautiful abstract prints, journals, and art instillations.

We love that all of Emmanuelle Wambach ceramics are inspired by her mother. Her mom, a master gardener and fiber artist, instilled in Emmanuelle a love of gardening and lace. We love the lace patterns pressed into the clay of her ceramic hearts.
Crowd sourced and managed by Tereneh Idia, Allegheny Animals With Attitude is one local league we truly love. AAA League just launched late last year with Mount Washington Wild Turkeys, Sugar Top Grubby Groundhogs, and Mexican War Street Squirrels. Stay tuned for more neighborhoods and their mascots (we hear there are deer in near future!)
Triple Moon Alchemy
Loukeisa Denise Edwards makes herbal holistic wellness products such as teas and bath soaks. She describes her brand in our Maker We Love Journal, “Triple Moon Alchemy is all about celebrating nature and its abundance and continuing a legacy of healing. This apothecary is for the self-care junkies that like to treat themselves to special things. Each item in the apothecary will make you feel like you are lovingly taking care of yourself both inside and out.”
