The Introduction: Kindred Black


I recently stumbled across a new shop, Kindred Black, and when I found myself checking back this weekend, I realized it was time to share. As more and more shops launch with the same tried and true (albeit amazing) independent brands, I’m always thrilled to see a shop with several new-to-me brands and products… and a little bit of (really good) vintage is always an appreciated addition.

Kindred Black is a retail studio sourcing and curating luxury lifestyle goods that are eco-responsible, craftsman produced and ethically manufactured. We believe style and design should not have to be compromised for eco-responsibility. We should have more options to make socially and environmentally conscious decisions about what we buy.

When sourcing product we look for at least one, but preferably a combination of the following elements – natural ingredients, low waste packaging, the use of recycled materials, manufacturing local to the designer, pre-owned, vintage items, craftsmen and handmade goods, and heirloom quality items that can be treasured and handed down for generations to come. Our vision is to promote the reuse of those things that are beautiful and already exist in the world and combine them with high quality contemporary goods that can replace a dozen mass produced and disposable versions.

Kindred Black is a proud member of 1% For The Planet, an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
