What The B.Eclectic Brand Is All About
Hey! I'm Aerryel, the Founder of the B.Eclectic Brand, a black-owned online fashion boutique based in Columbus, Ohio.
My journey started a few years ago as a child watching my mother sew and create my clothing and accessories. As a result, I wanted to learn how to do it myself.
As she showed me different techniques, I practiced sewing my own outfits and that satisfied my creativity for a while. However, as I got older, I fell in love with women's handbags, and needless to say, I shifted my focus to making those.
But it wasn't until I traveled abroad that I truly learned how impactful prints could be in my handcrafted designs.
While visiting countries like Brazil, Mexico, and Barbados, I was fascinated with how local artists mixed prints, patterns, and materials. They skillfully paired these elements together, creating something that stood out in the market and could never be replicated.
That craftsmanship inspired me.
It reminded me of my upbringing, which included a blending of my American culture with influences of my African heritage.
Plus it was a visual representation of how beautifully complex women can be.
Since then, I've created a collection of fashion accessories that reminds women of how special they are.
Now, of course, that's my story but what about the blog?
The B.Eclectic Blog
In the simplest terms, the B.Eclectic blog will consist of everyday style inspiration for bold, stylish women.
We'll share outfit ideas that you can use for work, travel, or running errands.
And will share the history and cultural significance of the prints we use from time to time.
For example, our next blog post will be a handcrafted handbag holiday gift guide. Then that will be followed by an interesting read about the Herringbone pattern used in many of our crossbody bags.
