Making History in Black History Month, Blac Flowerz launches the first business in the world focused exclusively on brands and products created by black American women.
Just launched online, Blac Flowerz, (BF) is a company dedicated to curating, showcasing, and selling exceptional products from black American women. Representing 35 different brands, every piece on the BF website is created by a black American woman, or from a company owned by a black American woman. Featuring fine leather goods, home decor, jewelry, bath and body care and more, there has never before been a marketplace or single contact point for the world to see and appreciate the extraordinary work of this under-represented demographic in the USA.
BF is the vision of Charlie Conable, a black American woman who has spent a career at the top of the luxury retail including managing premium boutiques on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, CA. She saw and felt the pain of the black community, and much of the country, in 2020 thru the events surrounding the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many more injustices going back generations and still very much in our society. Beyond marching in protest, she decided to to make a stand and bring awareness to her community... to black
American women entrepreneurs and artists. Her belief is that creating lasting generational wealth and equity has been an obstacle to black America, and that BF can help grow a group of amazing women get recognition, sales, and success they deserve, raising their profile and their independent wealth as an equalizing measure over time. Charlie choose to put her money where her mouth is, and to start a company whose sold mission is to help the black American women succeed. Right now is the time for Blac Flowerz, starting small and with big ambitions to change the conversation and create lasting and essential change in America. BF donates 10% of all profits back to charities working to help black American women, and further invest 10% of profits in start-ups that are black-owned businesses.
