CLEOBELLA was born on open roads by two lovers. Jim’s passion for surfing was the catalyst for a year-long adventure, where they set out to discover waves around the globe. The goal was to embrace the soul in everything and everyone the couple met. The whole collection is inspired by those stories you can’t always explain, but can never forget.
The company was founded in Bali because where the travelers are 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. The work with local artisans helps to provide a sustainable income each year, which makes an impact on the community.
Cleobella’s products are individually made by hand which makes each design a timeless work of art. Every bag and accessory are skillfully made with quality leathers, hand tooling, recycled metals and limited edition textiles sourced locally in Bali.
Cleobella’s handmade process allows their lovers 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.
