The Yard + Parish concept store was hatched through necessity and the spirit of discovery...
Co-Founders, Alesha & Samantha
Our time studying and working in the UK inspired us to have a go at solving a global cultural issue. Until now, it really hasn't been simple or straightforward to find or buy from ethnic designers, or even to buy chemical-free products for afro hair and skin unless we live in specific neighbourhoods. We recognise that this is an issue everywhere women of colour are considered a minority and so we aspire to be the most accessible one-stop shop for our generation.
Our motto is “Discover the Diaspora” which signifies our mission to encourage global exploration and investment into independent businesses in the UK and beyond.
