African American Heirlooms: AphroChic New Heirlooms

African American Heirlooms: AphroChic New Heirlooms

Tradition is a huge piece of African American culture and that also includes family heirlooms, no matter how small or big. If you are looking to add heirloom pieces to your home, the latest AphroChic collection, New Heirlooms, should definitely be on your holiday list. According to Bryan Mason, Co-Founder, of AphroChic,  “We created AphroChic in response to the lack of diverse representation that we saw and still see in the design industry. We didn’t see the voices of African Americans represented, and the absence impressed on us the importance of design and narrative, not simply for creating comfort in the home, but as a means of documenting a culture and expressing a world view. In seeking to correct this lack of representation, which should not be confused with a lack of presence, AphroChic has continually worked to design rooms that tell a unique cultural story, and to provide our customers with products that will help them do the same. With New Heirlooms we have taken another important step towards that goal, offering luxury, artisan products that truly represent an African American heritage. The timing could not be more perfect as calls for greater representation are coming from every field, including the world of design,” If you are looking to explore the culture of African American Heirlooms, this AphroChic New Heirlooms collection will not disappoint.  Be sure to share images of some of your family heirlooms on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle
