Back in 2002, Cinda Boomershine started her own interior design firm in the heart of southeastern style and design, Atlanta, Georgia. She quickly earned recognition for her fresh, functional and fun approach to design and color. TBS’s Movie and a Makeover recognized a gifted designer when they saw one and snapped up Cinda as their own on-air Design Expert.
Before she knew it, Cinda found herself in-demand and on-the-go, running from client to client for her design business, and from makeover to makeover for the TBS show. She soon realized she was missing something—the perfect bag! She needed a versatile and functional set of handbags and travel bags that were both durable and, of course, stylish!
Without luck finding them, Cinda decided to sew her own. In her basement on her grandmother’s old black Singer sewing machine she made the first cinda b bag. With a cute (albeit crudely sewn) sample in hand, Cinda set about turning a bag into a business. In 2004 she officially launched the cinda b brand.
At first, the business was run out of Cinda’s guest bedroom, affectionately called “cinda b Worldwide Headquarters.” Cinda and her husband, Mark, soon outgrew that house and moved the cinda b business into space above the garage at their new home. (They claim it was a vast improvement over the guest bedroom!) Sales continued to grow as more and more stylish women fell in love with the cinda b line. A handful of Hollywood celebrities fell in love, too, which was exciting.
Looking to grow the business on a national scale (and to give Mark his garage back), Cinda partnered with one of the most experienced sewing companies in the United States and moved the cinda b offices and facilities to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Now thousands of cinda bs are made each week and distributed both online and through more than 600 retail stores across the country. Cinda still works and lives in Atlanta, but travels back and forth to Fort Wayne often. And each and every cinda b bag is still designed with love and care personally by Cinda herself.
Focusing on women with active lifestyles like Cinda’s, cinda b has grown from a regional handbag line into a hot, nationally-recognized fashion statement for, as Cinda says with an unmistakably Southern drawl, “gals on the go.”
Today, cinda b offers 45 unique styles, each of which are available in all 13 fun colors and patterns, offering hundreds of style and color combinations for gals on the go. From school girls to collegiates, from young urban professionals to suburban moms, and from travelers heading across town, to those criss-crossing the globe, any stylish gal on the go can find the perfect set of handbags, totes and travel bags at cinda b!
All cinda b bags are made of the latest fabrics, making them water resistant, stain resistant AND machine washable! Most importantly, we’re one of the few handbag companies in the nation who can proudly say that we make all of our products right here in the USA.
