Hey! My name is Atzimba Cutzih but you can call me Atty. 

I am the maker, creator, social media manager, customer service rep, inventory team, pack + ship team...you get the idea. Lol. It's essentially a one woman show behind C By The Sea Shoppe, with the occasional help of my wonderful fiancé, Adam.

Quick brand story . . .

I started CBTSS in 2017! I had fallen completely in love with the aesthetic of macramé after seeing tons of beautiful plant hangers in the coffee shops I frequented in San Diego. I've always been the hands-on type so I went ahead and ordered some rope, watched YouTube videos and knotted away! I fell in love! Macramé became a very fun and therapeutic outlet, and although I opened up my Etsy shop, I didn't take CBTSS seriously until I moved back to Oxnard with my now fiancé. He encouraged me to go all in, so I did! All of 2019 + 2020 was dedicated to building my brand, expanding on products, and fine tuning my technique. 

In January of 2021, I finally felt comfortable enough to quit my "real" job (eye-roll, what is a "real" job anyways?) and take the plunge to make CBTSS full-time thing. A dream come true! 

9 fun facts. . .

I am an Aries sun, Leo moon + Aries rising.

I am Mexican-American.

I strongly dislike pickles.

I love the beach.

I believe steak fries are the superior form of potato. 

I am typically introverted until I get comfortable.

I can't swim.

I've been vegan for 11 years.

I have a hitchhiker's thumb.

Get to know me. . .

I was born and raised in Oxnard, California. I am a proud daughter of immigrant parents and have always seen the value of hard work. I've known I wanted to work for myself since I graduated high school but never imagined it'd be on the basis of running a fiber art shop! Definitely cool how life works out. ☻ 

During my free time, you can find me working out, at the beach, working on my cooking skills or watching The Office with my fiancé. 

If you made it through this, I'd love to get to know YOU! Leave a fun fact or let me know if we have anything in common! ;)

  • Hi! My daughter loves your posts and your site! I just purchased over $50 worth and did not get free shipping? We live in San Diego. It says free shipping on orders over $35…

  • I’d like to know if you could send me information about a macrame party. I’d like to host it at my home in santa barbara. Thanks!
