Hey hey, Iris and Morgan here. Founders & CEO’s of Melanated Kin. We’re so excited you decided to stop by and check out our site.
We met a few years back at work and instantly hit it off. We both have super bubbly personalities and warm spirits who have a deep love for our people and culture.
Over time our friendship grew and we ultimately began to share our goals and aspirations. In the midst of one of our many conversations, we both shared how we always wanted to be become entrepreneurs and our failed attempts at trying. In that moment Melanated Kin was born.
MK started out as a water bottle company rooted in celebrating and uplifting Black culture with a special focus on African American millennium women. Overtime water bottles turned into accessories and apparel. The product changed but the vision stayed the same.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoyed bringing the pride we have for our culture to life!
With love and light,
Morgan and Iris
