Reinventing the silk scarf.
CB Grey is a line of luxury scarves and accessories that are truly one of a kind. Featuring designs that are hand-drawn by founder, Courtney Buchanan, each piece tells a story. Specific to their names, the designs tell the unique stories of everyday yet extraordinary women. Our goal with each design is to CELEBRATE who these women are and what they represent and in turn, we strive to motivate other women to find the strength they need to be their own true, authentic self.
We believe fashion is more than just what you wear; it's a chance to show the world who you are. Our pieces are all uniquely different - just like the women who inspired them. So no matter your style, fierce or feminine, timeless or trendy, we've got you covered! We believe that our products can help you be your most confident self! So do you, stand out, celebrate your YOUness... and look good while doing it....
And remember, in case no one has told you today, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
Each design has its own unique story -- inspired by everyday, yet extraordinary women, who embody characteristics that we value and admire. Characteristics that we want to inspire others to discover within themselves.
And these aren’t well-known or famous people -- they’re women just like you and me.
Our goal with each of our designs is to CELEBRATE who these women are and what they represent. To use the aesthetics of the artwork to honor their courage and authenticity -- and in turn -- share it with the world and motivate other women to find the strength they need to be their own, true, authentic self.
After testing and sourcing numerous fabrics from a variety of manufacturers, we chose our fabrics simply because they are the best. We pay attention to every detail, because we believe that thoughtfully designed clothing should stand the test of time.
We are big fans of transparency and managing expectations, so here is what we promise you.
We hope you love your order, but if for any reason you’re unsure, you can easily return it to us for an exchange or a refund within 30 calendar days. No stress, no fuss.
Awesome + reusable packaging
We believe that beautiful packaging can go a long way in providing a positive shopping experience. But we also want to do our part in helping minimize waste, so we’ve designed our packaging to be reusable. We hope you love it as much as we do!
Honesty + Positivity + Communication
Basically just good ole fashioned high quality customer service! We hope you always feel like you can reach out if you have a question, concern, or just feel like chatting!
We are committed to and embrace diversity – in fact we encourage it! No matter your age, race, ethnicity, size, sexuality - we value you and want to see you draped in silk!
Founded in 2020, CB Grey transcends the realm of silk accessories, embodying a fusion of art and empowerment. Like many entrepreneurs, navigating the pandemic presented its share of challenges. However, I found my strength and purpose during this time, transforming CB Grey into more than just a brand—it became a beacon of hope and inspiration.
Behind each CB Grey design lies a story—a tribute to a woman. Through the colors and motifs of the design, I seek to amplify their voices and celebrate their strength. However, our mission extends beyond aesthetics. We strive to make a tangible difference in people's lives, whether through hiring locally, championing sustainability through reusable packaging, or through various charitable initiatives, like when we donated hundreds of scarves to patients in the pediatric cancer unit at CHOA (read more here).
CB Grey is my quest to share my art through silk and the stories of other women through my designs. Despite the odds, I've persevered, growing the brand into a dreamy collection of intricate, optimistic pieces. My journey as a female entrepreneur has been marked by determination, creativity, and a relentless pursuit of empowerment.
To me, fashion is more than just what you wear, it’s a chance to show the world who you are. Each CB Grey piece is intentionally designed to inspire you to feel beautiful, bold, confident and fearless -- because spoiler alert… YOU ARE!
Now dance your way over to the shop and jump on this silky bandwagon with me!

Here is a quick snippet of how a design begins. I go back and forth constantly between my iPad and illustrator. All the elements are hand drawn with an apple pencil and then I arrange and manipulate them in illustrator. I started this drawing with one theme in mind, but once I started playing with it in illustrator it took on an entirely different feel. It always amazes me how many times a design will change before it is finished!
Learn about our fabrics.
Modal fabric is a semi-synthetic fabric made from sustainably harvested beech tree pulp. Modal is often blended with other fibers like silk for strength and feel. Modal is considered a luxurious textile thanks to both its soft feel and high cost.
All of our shawls are a silk/modal blend.
