Innovative Supplies Brings Black Art to Classrooms
Summer is over, and students are being given even more reason to feel proud to be black, and back in school with some cool innovative black art school supplies.
Innovative Supplies, a black-owned, online retail store is owned and operated by 27-year-old mom and soon to be college student, Nneka. With the hopes of becoming a history teacher in her local area, she began Innovative Supplies as the first step to a bigger vision of “being a positive change in her community.” Innovative Supplies includes notebooks and apparel that showcase black art by black artists and weave together elements of black culture from the past and the present. Her goals for Innovative Solutions are just as impactful as the business itself, which includes depositing profits into a black-owned bank, hiring local minority youth and using environmentally sourced materials.
According to Nneka, the Innovative Supplies sold out within her first 24-hours of launching, with over 8550 orders being placed. So, it’s without question, folks are liking what they see.
Supplies are currently being re-produced, and will be available again soon for the public to order. Customers can also request custom designs making her business one that is sure to represent all that encompasses black culture and excellence. There’s no question that Innovative Supplies is living up to it’s motto of being a company that “stands to bridge the gaps between minority owned business and helping to foster more group economics.”
