While Cleobella has transformed in many ways since its inception in 2006, the brand's guiding principles remain the same. Founded by husband and wife team Angela "Ange" and Jim O'Brien with their belief that travel feeds the soul and inspires the artist, Cleobella continues to draw inspiration from around the globe. Cleobella's handmade process allows them the pleasure of personally working with local artisans and small factories, creating jobs and sustainable incomes around the world. They are committed to sustainable manufacturing practices and celebrate traditional craftsman techniques.

Cleobella is a mindfully-made brand

At Cleobella, sustainability and ethical practices are the core of their brand. Deeply rooted in their partnerships with independent artisans around the world, their designs are ethically handmade while preserving traditional heritage techniques.

Cleobella is GOTS certified with a focus on sustainable fabrics that are biodegradable. Additionally, they create sustainable incomes for partners that they've worked with since the launch of the brand.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives of everyone, everywhere. The Cleobella team has committed to those which they feel they can drive progress towards. This is their pledge to use the framework set out by the United Nations to help shift our world to a better planet for all.

UN SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production patterns are crucial to creating less waste. With roughly 65% of a product’s impacts being at the design stage, Cleobella takes into account each and every detail to make all of their products with as little to no mistakes as possible. Having a reliable team abroad plays a huge role in the success of their products and the clean production process they provide to make the products. By continuing these heritage artisan practices they are able to uplift these makers and properly admire their traditional art of creating textiles for years to come. Cleobella believes strongly in the importance of goal 12 and how these efforts can truly shift the world for the better.
