About Us

Hi I'm Sue from Cosima's, a small family run business based in the heart of Essex. I've loved sewing since a young age, as a child and teenager you could often find me sewing clothes and children's soft toys. 

When my daughter was young I discovered laminated cotton, I wanted a cooking apron for her that was waterproof and wipeclean but could not find one small enough. Laminated cotton is a lovely fabric to work with, it gives bags stability without being ridgid, is showerproof, easily wiped clean and durable. For a while I made aprons, this then increased to bags and accessories for the family and home, and so the business grew. 

As the business has grown we have now expanded and now work from both our home workshop and our beautiful studio within Artist Studios at Hylands Estate in Chelmsford, where we also run sewing workshops.

 As well as selling via our website you can also find us at:
