6 Small Businesses We Discovered On Instagram

Instagram has long been one of the best places to discover and support small businesses. From beaded jewellery to handmade bags, these are the brands we currently love.


Best For: Handmade Knitted Bags

The newest accessory trend to take over Pinterest, Tik Tok and Instagram is knitted bags. If you’re keen to have one of your own, Simme Copenhagen is where to find it. The Scandi brand – founded by Simone Boegh – stocks its signature chunky-knit hero bag in an array of colours and shapes. Shop them directly via DM.

Best For: Graphic Tees

A good graphic tee or tote can be useful year round. If you’re after a new one for work, the weekend or uni, London-based slow fashion brand Delta Studios is one to have on your radar. With hand-illustrated designs and a focus on sustainable materials and processes, we love the fun and whimsical totes. From animated ‘Happy Hour’ characters to uplifting slogans, they’re a worthy addition to your wardrobe.

Best For: Girly Fashion

Founded by Minnie Royden, Minka Dink creates timeless, feminine pieces for the modern girl – all with a slow fashion ethos in mind. From pretty blouses to miniskirts and slip dresses, it has your weekend wardrobe sorted. We can’t wait for the brand’s upcoming autumn drop.

Best For: Cool Interiors

Wonky Picnic founder Nadia readily admits she loves all things fruity, miniature and natural – which explains why her brand takes a truly unique approach to making its handmade trinkets and homeware. Perfect for a special gift or a one-of-a-kind addition to your own space.

Best For: Handmade Prints

You may recognise Poppy from her collaboration with lifestyle brand Damson Madder, but the influencer also owns her own small business. Her eponymous line includes prints and hand-drawn illustrations, as well as one-off ceramics. You can shop it all via her Etsy store.

This independent designer is known for its signature long sleeve tops and skirts – all of which are sustainably handmade by founder Ellis, herself. After a small break in 2021, the brand has started afresh this year, sourcing fabrics from independent mills and focusing on small batch production.
