Jeremiah Jones & Cecilia Grimm
Cecilia and Jeremiah met in Brooklyn in the early 2000s and have been collaborating in life and work ever since. They welcomed a daughter, Addy, in 2013, and at the ripe age of 3 she became SewLab USA's Chief Adventure Officer (she keeps everyone on their toes, and reminds them to keep a lighthearted state of mind.)
Both Cecilia and Jeremiah have backgrounds in art and manufacturing. Jeremiah began sewing and constructing around 1998. Shortly after beginning an apprenticeship, he developed a mindset that centered around the question... “Why buy something if I can make it?” Hence, SewLab USA was born. His vision is to create a space that is simple, clean, centered around family values, and most importantly, a teaching environment. Jeremiah has strategically and purposefully built a team of talented individuals who also have independent ventures. He wants SewLab USA to be a catalyst for for job creation, education, and creativity. SewLab USA is reminder of an industrial spirit that once was widespread throughout Baltimore. It is a small company, but one with a huge heart.
SewLab USA builds on the rich foundation and the international enthusiasm for quality goods Made in the USA.
