About Us


"When Black women claim space, it changes the world"

TAKEUPSPACE is a socially conscious brand that artistically challenges the obscurity and systemic erasure that Black Women experiences in all spaces of our society.

It was birthed out of frustration over the lack of representation of black women, of not getting the space or opportunity to control our own narrative, and not being included in spaces that often affected us the most. 

TAKEUPSPACE not only aims to provide a space for Black women to share their experiences and stories of taking up space but also to provide items that align with sustainable and ethical practices.
