Get Into These Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts From Black-Owned Brands
From Madamenoire: Talley and Twine makes beautiful timepieces and was created by HBCU alumni Randy D. Williams. Williams named the brand after an intersection in a previously crime-riddled neighborhood in Portsmouth, Virginia that has since become a place of booming opportunity for African American families. Talley and Twine makes interesting and stylish watches with leather, metal and canvas bands, the latter of which feature vibrant designs. Williams started the company because he felt so many men’s watches on the market looked the same and he wanted to create options for the consumer who likes to stand out.
