Name

CLON8’s name originates from the Ancient Greek word, κλών, meaning “twig”.In Numerology, 8 represents balance; the number is both spiritual and materialistic in equal measures. When applied to art or fashion, balance is the harmony that exists between design and proportion. Above all else, 8 is a representation of infinity. 

CLON8 represents a natural system of growth, whereby one design leads to another through the miraculous processes of creativity and balance. A process such as this has infinite possibilities. Therefore, CLON8 is endless.

Founder/Designer

The inspiration behind CLON8 is Angelika Chilikova. She was born in Kazakhstan – a land situated in central Asia, with vast steppes and sweeping views, a place of traditions and folk tales. Stemming from a long line of tailors and craftspeople, she is an intuitive and passionate designer.

Raised in Greece – a country famous for its philosophy, art and drama – Angelika was immersed in its deep-thinking and religious culture, its rocky landscapes and breathtaking vistas. Now living and designing in London, Angelika Chilikova is engulfed in the hubbub of a busy capital city, inspired by its pace and energy, yet able to perceive the simple within the complex, the striking within the mundane.
