clhei is a family-owned lifestyle brand based on Maui, Hawaii.
We handmake accessories for people who value simplicity, craftsmanship and a spirit of adventure.
In 2008, designer and founder Heidy Clawson arrived on Maui for a short vacation. On her travels, she met her professional windsurfer husband, and together they decided to lay roots in Hawaii and build a life together.
Heidy began designing a range of accessories to fit her new lifestyle, combining her passion for design with her travels round the world. Working between Hawaii and her native Buenos Aires, she developed her first range of handmade leather accessories, with a style that looked as at home on the beach as it did in the city - and the Clhei lifesyle was born in 2010.
Heidy's story continues to run through the brand today
- We're still family owned & run
- We believe in premium craftsmanship
- We value simplicity
- We live for travel & adventure
We hope you gain as much joy from using our Clhei goods as we do from creating them.
clhei is pronounced 'clay' - taking inspiration from the organic, tactile material that's been the basis of fine craftsmanship for generations.
The name also represents the roots and founder of the brand: Clawson, Heidy.
