Celebrating Our Favorite Women Owned Brands For Women's Month!

Celebrating Our Favorite Women Owned Brands For Women's Month!

March is Women's Month, and here at Friends, we're celebrating all things women. As a women-owned company, we know the importance of supporting our fellow women in business. That's why all month long, we're donating a portion of our sales to Rise of Broken Women, a local NYC organization that empowers women and families in low-income communities to break the cycle of poverty.

But that's not all! We're also highlighting some of our favorite (and best selling) women-owned brands. Here are some of our top picks that you absolutely must check out. And of course, you can shop the entire collection here.

Ping Hatta  

Ping Hatta of Ping Hatta Studios

This Thai fashion illustrator and lingerie designer is based in both New York City and Bangkok, and her whimsical illustrations are truly stunning. Her commitment to representing diverse ethnicity, body size, age, gender, and culture is reflected in her unique designs.

Ping's talent has been recognized by international brands and publications such as Vogue, American Illustration, Saks Fifth Avenue, Diptyque Paris, Rebecca Minkoff, and many more. We love her Croc Cat Sticker, her Tarot Death Cat Sticker and basically everything she does.


This company is 100% Woman of Colour owned, and Monika Mann makes every unique candle with love and authenticity.

These perfect little candles reflect back our humanness. They represent each of us in our perfectly imperfect way, and that's something to be celebrated. We can't get enough of the Mac and Cheese Candle or the Corny for You Food Candle. You can't go wrong with any of her candles

Sackville & Co.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Sackville & Co. in February on a panel at the tradeshow NY NOW about being weed accessory retailers, and it was an all-female panel. Here we are post-panel!

Sackville's contemporary cannabis brand is designed by women who like to smoke weed. Founders Hayley Dineen and Lana Van Brunt conceptualized a cannabis brand that women like them would feel proud to be a part of.

Their design-forward smoking accessories look as good as they make you feel. Grab yourself a Four Tiered Gold Grinder, a Gold Key Chain Carry Case, or some Rolling Papers and Tips today!

Only Hearts

This women-owned brand is all about revolutionizing undergarment dressing to come out and be seen. Their sustainably made lifestyle lingerie includes everything from sexy sweet undies and bralettes to sleepwear, lounge, and wear-anywhere wardrobe staples. Founded by Helena Stuart, Only Hearts is ethically manufactured in New York City using local, deadstock, organic, recycled, and certified made in green textiles.

Their pieces are worn by some of the biggest names in Hollywood, but they're mostly interested in girls like you. Try the Only Hearts Baby Tee and pair it with the Ruffle Brief, or any of the sexy cuties we have at Friends.

So, what are you waiting for, ladies? Come celebrate Women's Month with us at Friends! Keep your eyes peeled for info on in-store women-owned presentations we'll be holding all month.

Remember, it's OUR month, so let's support and honor each other. And don't forget, a portion of our sales this month will be donated to Rise of Broken Women, so every purchase you make is also helping to empower women and families in need. See you soon!
