We love sustainable clothes and we do it by fusing style with ethics
Based in Scandinavia and Kenya, Malaika Cotton is a design brand with a conscience, dedicated to create unique textile products by fusing style with ethics. Based in our Northern design heritage we are influenced and inspired by aesthetics around the world.
Sustainable clothes refer to fabrics derived from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fiber crops or recycled materials as well as to how the clothes are made.
Your clothes shouldn’t cost the earth. But the way we design, make and discard clothes has a huge environmental impact.
Malaika Cotton works closely with the production of our items to ensure fair conditions, minimal environmental footprint and happy workers. Our clothes are produced in Kenya’s only WFTO* factory producing garments, Kiboko Leisure Wear.
Sustainable items for your home and handmade jewelry
Malaika Cotton Details and Home has collaborations involving materials like sisal, bone, wood, wool, brass and other materials all over Kenya creating jobs in rural areas.
Our jewelry is made of recycled brass padlocks, door handles and hinges in small batches providing an income in disadvantaged areas in Kenya.
Proud of our slow fashion management
All our samples and parts of our production are made in our own workshop in Kenya. We source locally and strive to reuse and recycle at different levels in all products we make.
We work with women’s groups, collectives and single artisans in order for craftsmanship and traditions to survive in a country and a continent under fast development.
Go for slow fashion instead of fast fashion.
