About Us

 

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

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

It was birthed out of frustration. 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 WOC to share their experiences and stories of taking up space in places they are often not represented but provides items that aligns with sustainable and ethical practices.

Production

All items are made to order in Hamilton, Ontario to avoid waste due to overproduction of sizes and colourways that don’t sell. All garments are currently made with sustainably sourced 100% GOTS Certified organic cotton.

Due to our production methods, please allow 3-4 weeks before shipping for made to order items and 2-3 weeks for T-shirts.

We offer a selection of vintage, pre-owned, reworked/up-cycled clothing and accessories. We source every item, selecting pieces for their quality construction, natural materials and design. We aim to curate a thoughtful and artful selection of quality garments that can be easily introduced into a contemporary wardrobe.
