Cynthia Ashby, Inc. was officially founded in 1997 after Cynthia had success selling one-of-kind dresses in local boutiques while a student.  As the solo owner, Cynthia has grown her brand into a wholesale company selling to more than 60 stores in the US and Canada, as well as individual sales through Artful Home. She designs between five and seven collections a year, along with exclusive items for Artful Home.
 Quality is as important as innovation. Cynthia herself has a hand in every part of the business.  She creates all patterns, sews and tests first samples, and fuels her inspiration by continuously experimenting with small production items that embrace hand process, like dip-dying and piecing.
She designs using quality, natural fabrics,silk, linen, cotton, and occasional synthetics in varying weights, combinations, and textures to create collections as versatile as her customers' personalities. She designs for women who wish to look modern yet timeless, natural yet edgy, with clothing that is as functional as it is beautiful. When you wear Cynthia Ashby, you look and feel unique, a little mysterious, and always, deliciously comfortable.
