Making Inclusivity the Norm

The vision for our business is to promote and encourage melanated people to provide goods and services for each other, as well as the wider market. Our mission is to enable people of colour to see themselves in the gift packaging world through our wrapping paper, cards and stationery. This is already a well-established market for the rest of the world, but is underrepresented for melanated people.

A level playing field in this realm is not only needed, but wanted - Making inclusivity a constant.




AJ McKenna - black wrapping paper, gift tags and cards. Young girl with prepared gifts.

Our Story

I formed A J McKenna during the first coronavirus lockdown when the world was in the grip of fear – fear for our loved ones and for our economic future. After the events surrounding George Floyd’s killing and the global stand by the Black Lives Matter movement, I felt galvanised and decided that I needed to do my part. I thought “If we are not going to be included, then we need to make our own”. So, I asked myself, what can I do for my people? What skills do I have to offer my community?

That is how A J McKenna was born.

The company gets its name from my three children, and is designed to be a shining example of black entrepreneurship, creative talent and community driven empowerment.
