Who We Are

As the premier digital concept shop for artisans of the African Diaspora, The Volta retails apparel, accessories and apothecary from a curated list of brands who have strong cultural ties to their country of origin from Haiti and Puerto Rico to Ghana and South Africa.

We sell from designers who align with the goal of spotlighting other designers of color, in a melanin-deficient fashion world: The jewelry is all individually made by hand. Apothecary from organic ingredients. Yes, even the candles. Leather goods are made of the finest, durable quality. And the apparel —coming soon— is from the hottest international and homegrown American talent.

We don't discriminate, we participate.

In the last year, we've broadened our scope to include events, parties, and eventually, a space to house all our creative endeavors.

So stay tuned.
