Bag Lady Interview: Seulye - Founder and Designer of CLED

 

 

WHY HOZEN?

It's vegan and made with high-quality recycled materials and super soft. Most importantly, the colors and designs are beautiful! The details down to the stitching and finishing are well thought of.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR LOOK.

I love unbalanced trim and details. I like using jewelry and bags to dress up my outfits. These days I spend most of my time working in the studio doing physical work so anything comfortable goes!

 

 

WHAT'S A SELF-CARE PRACTICE YOU DO TO STAY HEALTHY?

Morning stretching, drinking lemon tea and water, and eating lots of veggies (believe it or not, even as a vegan I sometimes feel like I don't eat enough veggies!)

 

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR DOWN TIME?

I try to get fresh air and lounge in my backyard to get more vitamin D and play with my dog. At night, I spend time doodling new ideas and designs.

 

 

 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

Earth and creatures, people and events that occur in the environment. When I see people who put their energy into their work and not just related to design or arts, I feel so inspired and it keeps me motivated!

 

FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WORLD?

My hometown in Korea! The last time I went was about five years ago so I planned to visit this past spring to see family and friends, but due to the pandemic haven't been able to go. It will be my next major trip in the future.

 

 

GUILTY PLEASURE?

Definitely ice cream and donuts! My ultimate favorite is the corn almond soft serve from Magpies in Silverlake.

 

WHAT'S ONE SUGGESTION FOR CREATING EQUALITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES?

Having an open mind and educating ourselves.
