28 Nordstrom Bags I Love From Black-Owned Designer Brands

Black folks have always played a tremendous part in pushing creative culture forward. From innovative musical masterpieces to gorgeous art on display worldwide, the impact of Black people in society is undeniable. As a fashion editor, it brings me immense joy to see both the up-and-coming and well-established Black-owned brands stocking beautiful products at my go-to retailers. We all know Nordstrom has a pretty robust selection of goods, and Black-owned (and founded) brands are among the retailer's offerings. On its website, there is a dedicated curation that serves the purpose of uplifting and highlighting these Black brands.

Since I'm currently on the hunt for a new handbag, I took the time to dig through the Black-owned designer-handbag brands currently listed on Nordstrom. Fortunately, I unearthed many chic, cool options worth snatching up ASAP. Whether you're into soft fringe details, dual-toned leather, or bright, vibrant colors, I've identified handbags that can cater to a variety of unique sensibilities.
