About ThisManyBFsClub

Sales 621
On Etsy since 2016

This Many Boyfriends Club is a collective of like-minded womxn artists in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. meow meow meow.

This Many Boyfriends Club was born out of a sexist, exploitative, male dominated ceramics production company in Philadelphia, PA. We met each other through this job, and formed a bond as women who were dismissed, underestimated, and shut down.

This pulled us together. We became very supportive of each other and found parallels in our personal work and aesthetics. We had a desire to work together, to collaborate, to become stronger, and to encourage each other. To respect each other, and build ourselves back up after being torn down. Amidst multiple sexual assault and rape allegations against the CEO, we left our toxic work environment and took the skills, passion, and determination we had with us. We just found found a small studio in Philadelphia, and we are working on getting it up and running. We are doing our best to form something bigger than ourselves out of what was a terrible situation. Something which can empower and inspire women and femmes who have been treated like they can be walked on, manipulated, or exploited.

This Many Boyfriends Club, while having a large focus and foundation in ceramics, is seeking to branch out and become a brand. We are a group of talented, multidisciplinary artists who have a background in fine arts. We want to emphasize each of our individual talents and personalities, ranging from textiles, to jewelry, to prints and home goods. From silly, to delicate, to whimsical and dark. In doing this, we strive to challenge notions that femininity can't be strong, taken seriously, or multidimensional and complex. That being said, we are building and learning as we go!

We have received a lot of support so far, and we are driven and excited to see how far we can go. Thank you to everyone who has purchased, favorited, reviewed, and followed. We sincerely appreciate your support and without you, our dream couldn't come true.
