March is National Women’s History Month, and we’ve already celebrated some fabulous woman-owned eateries in Huntsville.

Now, we’re celebrating local women makers and creators and their inventive small businesses.

1. Jessica + Elaine with Pebble + Palm

Pebble and Palm is a local business founded by two Huntsville women, Jessica and Elaine, who learned the Japanese hand-dyeing technique called shibori. They make gorgeous blankets, pillows, clothing, aprons and so much more with their colorful fabrics.

2. Jessica with JM Style Designs

3. Cynara with Muchacha de Masias Spice Company

Cynara has received the authentic spice mixes and recipes that have been handed down through generations. All of her flavorful sauce mixes, salsas and seasoning blends have incredible flavor that her grandfather, Joe Eliseo Masias, crafted.

Yala Avenue, founded by owner Susana, is named after the historic fine art and craft—”yala” is the indigenous name for it in Patan, Nepal. The products sold at Yala Avenue are handcrafted in Nepal, still made in the traditional way. Susana carries unique jewelry, handcrafted paper called lokta, scarves, beanies and felt slippers.

6. Katie with Art4Justice

Katie Calvert creates beautiful art pieces and designs, and one of them really catches our eye. She puts her state produce guide design on tea towels and in frames, but our favorite is the market tote—perfect for carrying all our goodies at local markets.

7. Hannah with The Elysian Creations
