Rayford & Rayford Custom Embroidery and Designs was founded by Memphis, Tennessee natives Keegan and Keithan Rayford in the summer of 2020. As the Rayford twins struggled to find quality, merchandise featuring images of notable African-American people, places and moments in history, they remembered the old adage “if you want something done, do it yourself”. Their brand focuses on African-American contributions to American culture and the representation of historically Black pioneers in entertainment, sports, politics, medicine, and academia. The Rayford brothers are alumni of Xavier University of Louisiana. An education at a prominent HBCU played an integral role in the overall objective of Rayford and Rayford Designs to celebrate and recognize black achievement. Rayford & Rayford truly believes the body is a canvas. A t-shirt can be a simple choice of everyday fashion or an unstoppable billboard of protest. The creator decides.
