We had the good fortune of connecting with Cyndi Marty and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cyndi, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
99% of our raw goods that we turn into product was destined for the landfill. We collect fabric and other materials from high end fabric showrooms and interior designers after the product is discontinued or obsolete. And, then we are able to create one of a kind designer quality soft goods.
As a woman owned business, I love supporting woman. Hiring people that need work, that need the income as artisans and staying loyal to them.
A better world, a better community makes a better company.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Art! My art is “PILLOWS”! And, anything else you can make from fabric to enhance the decor of the home. Pillows, ottomans, Poufs, Floor Cushions, Pet Beds, Blanks & Throws.
We offer only high end designer quality fabrics from $100- $300 a yard. Because the fabric is donated we don’t charge for the fabric. So, the end user can design their own one of kind pillow using $200 a yard fabric and only pay $90 for it.
All of our product is designed by you – the customer. CMP+ will guide you through the creation process, so your soft goods are “yours” because you designed them.
I have been sewing and dabbeling in textiles for over the last 40 years. A mom and volunteer first always with a side hustle business. Everything I have done over my life has lead me to where I am today.
Easy – No! Fun- Yes! Life is a blessing! Everyday is what you make it. Today is a great day! And, tomorrow will be even better!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We all know that owning a small business is hard work. But, as a community of like minded people with keep each other going.
Angela Ireland @ AI Design, Courtney Wells @ LuSi Design Studio & Lauren Rickart @ LMI Studio they have been my biggest cheerleaders. Encouraging me, teaching me and cheering me on!
Can’t forget the family and the amazing contractor husband who was able to build out my studio in 30 days, and all of the friends who stopped by.
And, I need to mention my faith in Jesus and my Christian Community without them I would not have a business.
