Our Company was born on open roads. Jim’s love for surfing was the catalyst for a year long adventure, where we set out to discover waves around the globe. Our one goal was to embrace the soul in everything and everyone we met. Our collection is inspired by those stories you can’t always explain, but can never forget.
We founded our company in Bali because we were changed forever by this part of the earth, so enormously full of love, tradition and simplicity. It made sense to give back by embracing the lifestyle. Bali’s heritage, patterns and people remain at the heart of Cleobella. Our work with local artisans helps to provide a sustainable income each year, which makes an impact on the community.
Cleobella’s intricate process is signature to our brand, creating every product individually by hand makes each design a timeless work of art. Every bag and accessory is skillfully made with quality leathers, hand tooling, recycled metals and limited edition textiles sourced locally in Bali.
Cleobella's handmade process allows us the pleasure of personally working with local artisans and small factories, creating jobs and sustainable incomes in Bali, Indonesia.
In addition, Cleobella gives a percentage of all sales to empower women in South East Asia through CARE.org.
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. When equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increases access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
Cleobella is a free-spirited Bohemian Goddess. Her style and sensibility is effortless. She is a lover of life, nature, people and adventure. Cleobella is confident, beautiful and inspiring.
Cleobella is my Mother… Cleobelle – born in Northern Ireland, a hippie child of the 1970’s living the beach life in Southern California. The shining light in my life!
We hope that our collection inspires you to wander, live and love in style – with the magical spirit that lies in the heart of every wildflower. Make up your own story, always connected to what truly matters.
