About the Designer

Swaziland and Kenya Africa were my childhood homes

Traveling throughout the world and honoring my own Native American heritage have taught me that people everywhere crave beautiful, comfortable and inspiring apparel that resonates with their souls. While indigenous cultures remain attentive to nature and art, there has evolved a global audience, eager to be surrounded by sensuous fabrics and alluring adornment with pleasing patterns, resplendent colors, and diverse textures. People are increasingly aware of others’ experiences and gifts. There is a longing for global connections and sharing. Through personal apparel and accessories, Malaika blends different cultural and art inspirations. Malaika’s articles are pieces of beauty, comfort and style that inspire bonds, universal and personal.
