First, you honestly can’t expect me to do an Etsy-focused blog post without talking about my FAVOURITE Etsy shop, can you?!
TildaKimono is a Vancouver-based designer. Her Etsy shop has a bunch of stunning Kimono-style robes, gorgeous two-piece sets, and now headwraps!
I actually found Bounce Back Jewelry through Tildakimono. This Canadian shop, based out of Winnepeg, is full of “Handmade, One of a Kind, Botanical Resin Jewelry”.
I am so blown away by the uniqueness and beauty of the pieces. I also want absolutely everything purple.
Khokho Designs is a black-owned Etsy shop based out of Calgary. They sell African-inspired accessories, with a fan-favourite being the Fulani-inspired cloth earrings.
LanreStudio is an Etsy shop run by Nigerian-Canadian neo-pop artist, painter, sculptor, and product designer, Lanre Adefioye.
In this shop you’ll find a ton of wall art, as well as prints of his work on mugs, pouches, bags, and even duvet covers, and pillows!
Honestly, you can get lost scrolling through the items in his shop. I for one, now need this Gemini Art Poster.

Sanaazuri is swahili for “beautiful work of art”. This shop has a ton of beautiful African inspired jewelry, and gorgeous beaded statement pieces.
ShopNorthernAshanti is a cool blend of West African fashion and North American lifestyle. And considering my mom’s Ghanaian, and we life in North America, I’m in love.
