Citrus & Cane is a company that was created by two diverse individuals at the southern tip of Alabama, in the historic city of Mobile. C&C is a brand that develops every day to the needs of people. We started as a mask and accessory company, but as we have grown, we have listened to our customers. With people spending more time at home, we are trending towards C&C Home with the launch of our latest hand-poured candles, vegan lotions, and luxury hand soaps and hand sanitizers!
Though other generations tend to paint millennials in an idealistic light, we have built ourselves on a solid foundation. The two of us came into this journey of building Citrus & Cane in very different ways. Keep reading to learn more about the two entrepreneurs behind the brand: Megan and Richard!
Since the age of 12 I've been a serial entrepreneur. My gramma taught me to sew at a young age, and I've had various small businesses since then from selling handmade pillows in middle school, to those fuzzy boa purses in high school, and then swimwear/dresses in college. It's such an incredible skill my gramma taught me, so when my close friend Richard (and now fellow business partner) was sewing masks for local hospitals during the March 2020 COVID lockdown, I knew that I could help him knock out some of the sewing.
We had a ton of old mermaid fabric from my days of selling swimwear so we made a bunch of mermaid masks and ended up selling out without even trying! Once I saw the response of supplying our community with handmade cute masks, my entrepreneurial mind started burning. How can we support our community, build a brand, and use our creative talents at the same time? Boom, Citrus & Cane was born.

Nestled in a third-story loft in the heart of downtown Mobile, my energy and love for this city comes from its people who were born to celebrate. My husband, family, and friends are my living force, and without them the person that I am today would have never been.
I started sewing masks at the start of the COVID-19 countrywide quarantine, and I began donating them to children's hospitals in Mobile and surrounding areas. When I was furloughed from my full-time job I had to start selling masks to support the donated ones to our local hospitals. From that, the original idea of Citrus & Cane was formed. Born out of my love for the community, C&C started as a brand that wanted to bring a normality to masks. We launched with uniquely printed masks and exclusive sanitizers made with essential oils and love.
