In 2014, Black Squirrel Company (BSC) was born. BSC is a Washington, DC based start-up on a mission to design, construct, sustainably sourced accessories, for you & your home. We believe we’re creating a future through honoring our rich diverse cultures. By carrying a limited stock of each product and offering some styles that are even one-of-a-kind, we establish a slow fashion approach.
Renata Philippe is the founder and CEO of Black Squirrel Company. An Entrepreneur.Wife. Mother. Army Veteran. Accessories designer. Renata Philippe is all of these and so much more. Throughout her travels foreign and domestic , Renata has always been drawn to textiles (fabric). To Renata, the importance of textiles extends far beyond its aesthetic properties.

Along with the handcrafted personal collections, BSC also creates textile art exploring the connection between contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship; finding inspiration in West African, South East Asia and all forms in nature.
