AAPI Month 2022: Home Decor and Accessories from Asian American Companies

The United States is filled with people who come from different backgrounds and histories. Many of these people are immigrants who have traveled to the United States to start a new life or to raise a family. Although it can be difficult to start from scratch, these immigrants have persevered and continue to work hard to support their loved ones and their community.

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander month. One of the easiest ways to show support for the Asian community is to shop at their stores. Here are some of our favorite Asian companies for home decor and accessories.
