Six Small Black UK Businesses That We Love: A Taylor Magazine Guide

by Catherine Nicholls


Dorcas, the force behind DorcasCreates, is probably one of the coolest people ever. Her mission? To uplift black women through illustration. Beautiful illustrations, at that. DorcasCreates sells totes, prints, pins, notebooks, and much more. Check her out – promise you won’t regret it.


What’s not to love about NARLOA skincare? Their products are 100% vegan. They focus on using organic, natural ingredients, and promise no artificial fragrances, parabens, or tonic chemicals. The added bonus? Not only are their products great, they’re also so, so pretty. Your skin will be thanking you for it.

Afton by Palm

Every single piece on Afton by Palm will take your breath away. Individually crafted, the site features hand-made trinket dishes, bowls, and plates, gorgeous earrings, and beautiful positive affirmation cards. We recommend getting one of everything. And then maybe a little more, too.

Mum Bub Hub

Mum Bub Hub isn’t just a business; it’s also a social enterprise. All profits from the sale of their products go to supporting women’s perinatal education, and let us tell you – their products are awesome. Mum Bub Hub products focus on self-care and wellness (ring any bells?!), and make a perfect gift for any new or soon-to-be mums.

Home Jewels Co

Please believe us when we tell you that we let out a little squeal of excitement when we saw the range of scents that Home Jewels Co’s hand poured soy candles come in. You’ve got banana bread. You’ve got rhubarb and custard. You’ve got marshmallow. You’ve got tons more, equally fantastic but not food-related, scents, too. Tell me your mouth isn’t watering right now.

Hannah Pratt Clothing

Hannah Pratt Clothing is bright, beautiful, and empowering. Handmade and inspired by both black Britain and Africa, their designs are unique and oh-so-cool. T-shirts, hoodies, and totes aplenty, you’ll be wanting it all, in every colour. Why not give them a go?
