In 2006, Cleobella's founder Angela and her husband set off for a year of global travels and life reflection. Inspired by the local artisans and markets they encountered, Angela could see Cleobella on the horizon. Angela envisioned Cleobella as a global brand, wanting each piece to embody the artisan that created it.

Now headquartered in California, Cleobella is an internationally recognized lifestyle brand dedicated to creating handmade sustainable fashion. As a company, they are fervently dedicated to upholding sustainable practices and income for each of their partnering artisans. A female founded company, they believe that empowering women globally makes the world a better place. Cleobella donates 1% of profits to organizations dedicated to the empowerment of women worldwide, like CARE.
