Small-batch accessories &
home goods for people who
aren't afraid of a little color.
The Silk and Cotton Shop is owned
by artist Eliza Schneider-Green.
Everything is made by hand in her
home studio in North Florida.
Get to Know Eliza
Eliza is a seamstress, painter, photographer,
and professional graphic designer with a love
for trial and error and making a mess in the studio. She and her husband have four cats,
a lot of plants, and a mutual hatred of heat.
Her workday usually involves an early morning
cup of tea, non-stop NPR, and lots (and LOTS) of fabric scraps.
The Silk and Cotton Shop name was passed down from
Eliza's great-grandmother, Bluma, who sold sewing notions
and fabric in Panama City, Fl, in the early twentieth century.
She was an entrepreneur who immigrated from Russia as a teenager, stood tall in her 4 foot 9 inch frame, raised three sons and one daughter, and never missed a chance to fill
her table with as much food as could fit.
Handmade with love.
