Shades of Color, LLC is a black owned business founded in 1995 originally to fill a void within the calendar industry.  Adrian Woods and Courtney Hines were two young entrepreneurial males with a vision, and that vision has now expanded our company into a pioneering leader in the African American and Religious gift markets.

Through the curation of distinctive one of-a-kind African American art gifts, we strive to share our history and genuine Black art with our communities by
working with renowned artists nationwide. Our popular gift products include Woven Tote Bags, Crossbody Bags, Stainless Steel Bottles, Calendars & Planners, Woven Cushion Covers, Aprons, Oven Mitt and Potholders, Mugs, Convertible Neck Pillows, Home Décor, and More!

Shades of Color products exude beauty and majestic dignity, while inspirationally uplifting and empowering those that see, purchase and resell our gift assortments.  We are very proud of how our product line has expanded and grown with our audience over the decades. Where we once saw a void in the market, we now see the gift industry flourish with functional and wearable art pieces that bring inspirational genuine black art to the masses. By creating products that motivate, celebrate and educate, all communities have been able to bond and connect through our collections.

Shades of Color takes pride in celebrating black culture and achievements all year round. Each wall calendar is filled with black history facts every month which encourages a sense of pride and education 365 days a year. We spotlight the beauty, resiliency, and contributions of African Americans which shines throughout every collection.  Click ABOUT US to learn more, and shop for BLACK HISTORY MONTH GIFTS.
