The Cornrow, founded by sisters Kemi (big sis) and Lara (little sis) in 2020, is a heartfelt tribute to their African and Caribbean heritage. With a deep passion for homeware, books, and lifestyle products that celebrate the Black experience, the sisters scour the globe for joyful representations of their culture. Kemi, who left a career in corporate finance during the UK lockdown, is the driving force behind The Cornrow, sharing her love for the brand on Instagram @CottageNoir. Lara, an accomplished digital marketing professional, is committed to supporting Black-owned brands and can be found on TikTok at ThisIsLaraLand. The Cornrow is a true family affair, with their mother Yasmin providing creative advice and gift-wrapping services @yasminwrapstar, and Yasmin's partner Jonathan, formerly of Chelsea Design Centre, offering invaluable retail advice. Together, they are on a mission to spotlight under-represented stories of Black and African diaspora design, introducing "Afro-aristo" as a fresh addition to traditional design trends.
