Made in Oakland, Ca. Calliope accessories are gracefully refined. Maria Janeff, the designer/owner of Calliope, finds inspiration from nature, bygone eras, and a love of beautiful textiles to create her collections. Locally produced with impeccable craftsmanship using thoughtfully sourced fabrics, Calliope bags and accessories are both classic and fashion forward, timeless and modern. Fueled by a strong desire to improve the lives of animals on our planet, no animal products are used in the Calliope collections
Calliope empowers positive change through fashion. We show our deep and passionate commitment to protecting animals by donating a percentage of our sales to animal sanctuaries like The Elephant Sanctuary and The Farm Sanctuary. For this Spring Collection 2017 we will be donating 1% of our sales to the Elephant Sanctuary. The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee is a natural-habitat refuge where sick, old, and needy elephants can once again walk the Earth in peace and dignity. Who thought buying a pretty clutch could help protect our animals?
