We were thrilled to connect with these young entrepreneurial brothers and immediately fell in love with their modernized take on the symbolic afro pick. Each pick represents an artistic theme, lovely to use or simply sit on your dresser to put a smile on your face. Needless to say, they make unique gifts, for both men and women.
TRIBE speaks to a past not forgotten. To a bond that connects us all, tying us together through the intricate labyrinth that is our history.
This design symbolizes the maze of self discovery that we must navigate, while reminding us of our deeper roots through connectivity and heritage.
RENAISSANCE Through the words of storytellers like Zora Neale Hurston, our voices were heard. Through the sweet tunes of Louis Armstrong, our spirits understood. A renaissance is a revival - a renewal of what it is that makes us who we are.
The subdued hues of this design allude to the lax atmosphere of the streets and the playful melodies of the jazz clubs in Harlem. This pick points to lost elements of Black culture that were renewed during the Harlem Renaissance
HARLEM holds a special place in Black history. During the decades of the Great Migration, Harlem provided the fertile soil in which Black culture began to sow.
The vibrant colors within this design speak to the lively energy that arrived in the neighborhoods of Harlem—to the passion that lead to one of the greatest revivals in Black culture.
FRESHER PRINCE As the name implies, Fresher Prince is the newer staple coming to neighborhoods near you (looking at you, Bel Air).
The abstract shapes and quirky colors of this design speak to the uniqueness of Black culture. Fresher Prince is a trophy of the impact Black culture has made in America.
POWER is our ability to direct what path history will take. Just as our leaders of the past fought for what they believed in, it is up to us to raise our voices and minds to the continued legacy of freedom for all.
This design represents Black culture, history, and solidarity. This design represents Power.
