NiLu: Our Story

My husband Mark and I founded NiLu with a simple goal: to showcase the rich culture, amazing artistry and unique attributes of Harlem and other special places around the world. We founded NiLu to sell gifts, home decor and crafts from local Harlem artists as well as items from around the world.

Harlem is our home, and our name “NiLu” comes from our son’s first names, Nigel and Luke. We use honest business practices and sell Fair Trade products whenever possible. We want everything you buy from NiLu to give you a deeper connection – to yourself, your home, and the global community.
