Our tees are created to express the pride we have in our hair-itage & the joy we feel in sharing that pride w/ others in our community!
young.black.nappy tees! pride is pretty, pride is power!
The young.black.nappy. t-shirt line was born out of one natural hair'd designer's obsession with colorful graphic tees and, through the help of a great family of young artists, grew into something much more. As a company, ybn is dedicated to promoting positive images of young, talented Blacks with naturally kinky, curly, loc'd, and nappy hair. We believe in the beauty of Black people and encouraging each other to take oride in our hair-itage as we positively impact our community. And, yes - we love t-shirts!
young.black.nappy. tees are inspired by and created for the growing and vibrant natural hair community. We know how proud you are of your kinks. We see how your faces light up when another curly 'fro walks into the room. We hear you chat excitedly about the new styles and products you can't wait to try. And we want to give you a high-quality, eye-catching, and fun shirt to wear that says to the world... I'm Black, I'm nappy, and I'm proud of it!
Your generous donation will help us to do the following:
- Set up and print a retail-ready run of t-shirts.
- Design and launch an online store.
- Finance a photoshoot to market our tees.
Please donate, share this project with your curly, kinky, and nappy friends, and, once we hit our goal, we'll send you a young.black.nappy tee of your own!
Pride is pretty. Pride is power.
