Just as exciting as receiving as pressies at Christmas is the presentation. Good wrapping and a nice card builds up the anticipation for the gift. I dare say, receiving a card that makes you feel seen melts the heart and makes the present feel that more special. This Christmas if you want to support small Black British brands, here are four brands create special Afrocentric Christmas cards.


Nyha Graphics

Nyha Graphics new fails to wow me. They have a wide range of products but my most frequent purchase is their cards. Their illustrations of little curly/afro girls and boys are endearing. Last year I bought a selection of their Christmas cards. They were so cute! I almost didn’t want to post them. Back again this year, a set of 4 Black angel cards RRP £7.40. I’m telling you they will deliver joy to ever recipient.





I fell in love with the quirkiness of this KitschNoir a couple years ago. Cute illustrations, pretty pastel palette and themes that hark to African and Black Caribbean culture stole my heart. One of my favourite purchases was their Affirmation Diary for 2021. Some days ago, I saw on their Insta were collaborating OSoCurly. Since then, there was a big reveal and it didn’t disappoint!

OSoCurly and KitschNoir  now have a limited edition gift set of two stain scrunchies and a Christmas card. It is the perfect secret Santa press for a curly curl.

KitschNoir cards are also available in Tesco.


AfroTouch Designs


Georgina Fihosy is the Creator and Owner of AfroTouch Design. She started with cards and later she developed stationery, homeware and fashion range. Her cards are now stocked in the high street chain bookshop, Waterstones! What sets Georgina’s work apart is her style of actually embellished with real laser cut print fabric pieces.

AfroTouch Designs Christmas cards feature a range of Christmas festive themes: nativity, Black Santa, Christmas Trees and more. One pack of 5 cards RRP £20.75.

Stacey-Ann Cole

Last my but not least is Stacey-Ann Cole. Before all the others I mentioned earlier, I was a customer of Stacey-Ann’s. Her use of watercolour is wonderful. She achieves depth, definition and texture in the most eye-catching way AND excellent quality.

If you are look for cards with a difference, pop over to Stacey-Ann Cole.


What do you think of my list? Have you ever bought from any of these Black British brands? What’s your favourite thing to buy? Have you ever bough Afrocentric Christmas cards? What did the recipient say to you?

I recently attended  Cocoa Kids Fest, in the Business Design Centre, Islington and I spotted more brands! Two of them stood out to me, so, I bought Christmas cards from them. What I really liked was that they each had their own style.  Each card is special in its own way. The cards seen on the left is by Aziza Illustrates. Pop over to  my Instagram to see what else I’m loving.
