Our philosophy: Shop Meaningfully
Or why I got into this...
I wanted to start this shop because I strongly believe in the power of Opportunity. Opportunity for Artists, both locally and around the world, to self-sustain through their craft, to get the opportunity to grow and perfect their craft and to share their passion with the world.
Clever Element provides opportunity by welcoming in artists from here in Southern California to artisan co-ops from India, Guatemala, Romania, Nepal and more. For all our Artist Partners, we provide a monthly report with all your feedback to help them grow and perfect their craft. We focus on the business side of things so artists can focus on their creativity.
Items we buy have been reduced to just being "things" in our life that clutter and confuse. But at Clever Element, I wanted everything to be meaningful; a meaningful part of your life but also a meaningful in the sense of a shared journey of creation. From an artist's inspiration to your closet or living room or as a gift for a loved one, you are sharing in that item's journey by sharing in the artist's story. That's why we have Artist biographies throughout our space.
