Hi, I’m Brooke
Ciocco (see-aw-co) Design Co was created in 2016 as an outlet to showcase my handmade macrame pieces. Over the years it has become so much more. My love for handmade and vintage goods shifted the company to encompass not only items created by me, but also a curated selection of found goods as well. With a focus on modern sustainable fashion and natural fiber content, I make it a point to find the highest quality vintage and second hand items.
While receiving my degree in Product Design, I developed a passion for textiles and sustainable fashion. In the USA alone, 10.5 million tons of clothing is sent to landfill every year. The state of fast fashion is unsustainable. It’s my mission to provide access to a curated selection of sustainable second hand items with some handmade mixed in. We can make a difference by buying second hand, supporting independent makers, and being conscious with our consumption.
I’m located in Portland, OR where you can generally find me at markets all around town either selling vintage and handmade goods at the Portland Flea each month, or with my full-time job selling underwear for Thunderpants USA (another amazing sustainable clothing company). I spend the rest of my time thrifting all over town or hanging out with my pup, Leia.
