The end of summer is approaching, and we must get ready to get back to the routine. Our children start a new school year, and we must get back on track. It’s time to renew their wardrobe, buy school supplies, and get everything they need to come back refreshed.
And if it is renovation we are looking for, why not do it with stores and brands that are and represent all the beauty of our Latino culture?
Sometimes we go for the easy option when buying everything we need for our children, but we’ve decided to save you some time and share five options of Latina-owned stores to support this back-to-school season. Everything you need while carrying a little piece of your culture with you in everyday items: clothing, stickers, notebooks, mugs, and much more!
This small but amazing online store is run by two immigrant sisters, Yajahira and Atziri Peña. Their brand with a youthful touch is characterized by having a statement in everything they do. We are not only talking about their colors and designs but the very important message printed in their designs so that no matter what we are doing, we never forget where we come from. In addition to making unique designs, these entrepreneurs have a fund where you can donate to support DACA students. You can learn a little more about Yajahira and Artziri’s story here.
Dos Estrellas is another 100% Latina-owned online store based in L.A., California. This is a more spiritually-leaned store that offers innovative designs full of our Latino culture. They have a great variety of notebooks, mugs, stickers, apparel, and much more. Find in this store things that make you reconnect with your roots while looking fashionable.
