About Us

Brown Crayons is a multiracial company.
Our t-shirts and products feature brown girls from many diverse backgrounds and family structures.

Brown Crayons celebrate brown girls in the park

3 is the magic number…..in the words of De la Soul.

2 Americans + 1 Dane

2 Scorpios + 1 Gemini

2 blue eyed women + 1 brown eyed

We’re 3 friends from different parts of the world, with different upbringings and experiences who have come together to form Brown Crayons.

Brown Crayons was created to fill a white space.  There were no t-shirts we wanted to buy for our beautiful, brown girls that reflect who they are or who they can be - strong, powerful and authentic.  So we made some.  Be the change.

*Please note that these girls are not all our daughters.  Yet they are all of our daughters.  Brown Crayons is a collective project and we are forever grateful to all the parents who entrusted us with their girls and all the people who have and continue to give us support on this journey.

-Patti, Rikke and Tina
