Cecil...
Hello, I am Lisa, designer and maker behind Cecil & Co. carpet bags and accessories. Cecil & Co. was created to bring to life the visions dancing in my head, combine my love of textiles, vintage, and my passion for the creative process. I have been creating for as long as I can remember and can not imagine my life without it...it truly sets you free! I design and create all of the pieces myself from designing the paper pattern to stitching the last detail, using some of the most amazing fabrics and vintage finds I have collected over the years, right here in my studio in Hill Country, TX. With over 30 years of creating and professional sewing experience, your Cecil and Co. items are very well made! (Don't be surprised to get stopped on the street wearing one of my creations, I do!)

& Co...
Oh...Last, but not least...my husband Peter who is my biggest cheerleader...;) from helping me with the bookkeeping to the shipping...I simply couldn't do it without him!

Our Commitment
Made and sourced in the USA...all components are from local vendors, all in the US...if we can not find it here...we find someone to make it or make it ourselves.
My grandmother used to say..."Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without." Through to the core...every time I worked on a project...I couldn't bare to see the waste! Some of our more popular designs have come together from those small pieces saved...like our patchwork knitting bags. The fabrics and supplies we use on all of the projects for Cecil & Co, either are saved or found...such as our vintage finds or our tiny adornments made from vintage pieces and parts...;)
"As a highly creative soul, following my heart and true passion of creating...I feel I am breathing new life into each piece I make and in turn with every piece you are getting a part of me as an artist." Lisa
