Who Are We?
In 2004, driven by a curiosity towards design and materials, Cynthia Bouchakjian first began with creating accessories that incorporated elements like metal, leather, beads and many more. Soon after, her passion for leather grew as she experimented further. Bouchakjian’s appreciation of leather and love for design came together with her first line of belts.
With the expertise of the family owned business in leather trading back to the early 40’s helped her understanding of the qualities of leather; its touch, its feel, and its molding, and her understanding of the intricate craftsmanship that goes into the production of her designs soon led to the creation of her first collection of bags in 2008. The inspiration behind her collection is always simple: what the modern woman needs. A genuine person herself, a wife, and a mother, Bouchakjian’s inspiration stems from her own day-to-day happenings. As a woman on a mission, she seeks to instill practicality, lightness, playfulness, and quality craftsmanship in all her pieces. In celebration of the modern woman, the C by Cynthia designs have the ability to be integrated into every woman’s sense of style, creating a different canvas for every C by Cynthia piece.
