I’m glad you asked! Being one of the most frugal ladies on this planet, I totally get you! I’m one of those wear-it-till-it-tears, throw-whatever’s-leftover-in-the-fridge-into-a-dish kind of girls. Anything to save a buck (and the environment of course)! And don’t even get me started on maximizing credit card points! Anyway, this penny-saver knows how hard you work for your dollars and how easy they slip out of your pocket. Which is exactly what I was thinking about when making the blingsling®.
In building Clever Designs LA, I wanted to make sure everything was done as ethically as possible. I know I’ve touched on this before, but it was extremely important to me that people, animals and the environment came first. And while there are always measures to improve on, I feel 100% confident that things were done in the best way I knew how.
All of the materials are vegan. The majority of all materials were carefully sourced here in LA with local businesses using dead stock fabric. That means those last several yards other companies would throw in the trash after a collection is finished are strategically purchased and repurposed for your one-of-a-kind blingsling. That’s right, the blingslings are all small batch, limited editions and yours is truly unique.
Speaking of unique, our manufacturing is done right here in LA, too. All that political talk you hear about “keeping jobs in the U.S.” and “small businesses being the backbone of the economy” meant a lot more to me than just catchphrases. I wanted to put my money where my mouth was and contribute to fair wage jobs here in my backyard where I could see it making a difference and feel good about it.
The ladies and gentlemen from the picture work extremely hard meticulously securing each magnet in the straps and hand making the bags to ensure that yours will not only keep your necklaces tangle-free, but it will also last for YEARS. Just like a handbag or luggage, you’ll be using it long after that New Year’s dress you just bought.
Many of you have told me stories about buying multiple different carriers that either don’t work at keeping your necklaces tangle-free or don’t hold ALL of your pieces, causing you to buy different bags for different jewelry. Or, as the majority of you have confessed, you have to re-buy hundreds of single-use plastic bags that don’t protect and certainly don’t detangle. Not to mention, they take hundreds of years to decompose…if they ever do! But don’t even get me started talking about plastic.
While not included in the price, we are proud to say that we give back a portion of every single bag sold to a charity empowering women. We really, truly care and are determined to move the women’s movement forward. You can rest assured your dollars are going to the right place.
Even with all the reasons behind our pricing process, maybe you still have your concerns about the blingsling. It’s only natural. All I can say is, you have to try it.
If you haven’t seen it in person yet, I’m working on some videos for you coming soon! But if you’re anything like me, you want to think and think and think it over before ever trying it and by that point we may have already run out of this collection (it truly is limited edition!). No worries though! That’s why we have FREE SHIPPING and 30 DAY FREE RETURNS! Let us ship it to you to test out and if you decide it really isn’t going to work, just let us know and we’ll help you ship it right back. Easy.
Ultimately, the company was started to create quality and revolutionary products conscientiously that make life easier and allow for more time to achieve, inspire and do what we love. I want each of you to maximize your time doing things that you l-o-v-e instead of packing, unpacking and untangling necklaces and jewelry. Spend more time with family. Enjoy an extra hour at the beach. Finish a few more chapters of your new book.
For us frugal gals, it’s a bit of an investment up front. But know I’m on your team to SOLVE your problems, not make them worse. You’re going to not only love it for years and years, but you’ll wonder how you ever traveled without it!
Love. Inspire. Grow. Enjoy.
