8. The Sitos lifestyle shop was founded by Jessi, a proud "brown Latina" who handmakes a variety of home goods including macrame products, customizable gift boxes, and furniture.

10. Tech-Life makes the indoor and outdoor speakers for your personal enjoyment and maybe for your next shindig. Play whatever you want (Ocean sounds? Cardi? That weird podcast you're stuck on? 🤪) with super-clear sound whenever you want.
11. Tappas is a family-owned business that makes a (surprise, surprise) tapas-inspired wooden serving dish that kinda looks like a bowl but works like a tray. Either way, it'll save space on the dinner table, make cleanup easy by minimizing serving dishes, and stores easily.
12. Valfré makes uniquely designed clothing, accessories, home goods, stationery, and tech accessories so much more – and most feature original illustrations from Mexican artist and founder, Ilse Valfré.
13. Bomba Curls is for the curly-coily-kinky cuties who wanna keep their hair nourished! These products are meant to loop around those helix shafts and across those scalps with LOVE, OK?
Bomba Curls was created by Afro-Dominicana Lulu Corder and makes products meant to strengthen and grow those stunning curls of yours.
Promising review (for the oil): "My hair instantly felt softer, and my curls were more defined. The oil also helped when slicking my hair into a bun." —Katherine A.
