Cynthia Collins grew up in Texas. Many of her childhood days were spent sewing with her grandmother, who taught her about fabric, patterns and the intricacies of making clothing. After graduating from Tulane University, Cynthia started her professional career in Tokyo. She spent the next five years living in Asia and developed a love of scouring flea markets, stoked by her insatiable wanderlust to explore the unfamiliar. 

For the last 20 years, Cynthia has been designing jewelry and textiles as well as importing her finds from all over the globe. Her loyal following gathers once a week to shop her latest offerings from her San Antonio bungalow.
