CLED (clӕd) was inspired by using discarded resources and repurposing them into new treasured objects to reduce our environmental impact without ever sacrificing quality or design. Their story begins with a question. Why is jewelry made of natural resources, animal materials or mass manufactured with low quality? More so, the fashion industry is one of the top pollution contributors in the world. To reduce our environmental impact, otheir answer is to leverage high-quality existing materials to create upcycled and beautiful pieces. What is the origin of CLED? CLED is derived from the word cycle(d), reflecting the meaning of recycled and upcycled. They believe in the circularity of goods, as they continuously reuse objects and transform them into renewable products. CLED stands for Conscious Lifestyle Earth Friendly & Ethical Design, which they believe in and are committed to. They proudly use sustainable, cruelty-free and discarded materials in their design and production. They value transparency in all aspects of how they do business.
