Furthering our series on introducing you to the faces behind ethical fashion, we'd love to introduce you to Angela, founder of the much loved bohemian brand, Cleobella. Spoiler alert, make sure you read to the bottom, there may be a delicious treat for you!
Angela grew up in Seal Beach, CA and is a Mama to a daughter Indigo Skye and son Keenan. Her husband Jim’s love for surfing was the catalyst for a year long family adventure, where they set out to discover waves around the globe. Our one goal was to embrace the soul in everything and everyone we met. Cleobella was born on open roads and the collection is inspired by those stories you can’t always explain, but can never forget.
Cleobella works with local artisans in Bali helping to provide a sustainable income each year, which makes an impact on the community. Every bag and accessory is skillfully made with quality leathers, hand tooling, recycled metals and limited edition textiles sourced locally in Bali.
