Melanin Apparel uses catchy phrases, bold and rich colours and affirming messages to foster black pride through their clothing. The company runs counter to the often prevailing world view that black skin is to be hated and feared.
Absolutely no hate or fear with this brand – their messages on their clothing are current, on point and are a real celebration of blackness. Most t-shirts are available in both a unisex and a more fitted ‘ladies’ style and are made from 100% jersey cotton (some clothing colors contain polyester). There are also hats, hoodies, tanks, kids sizes and some totes available. Prices for a standard unisex adult t-shirt start at $28USD. The added bonus is that Melanin Apparel clothing is made to order in the USA, sweat shop free.
