Our Design Philosophy
The inspiration for Malia’s designs often comes from Cambodia itself. Whether traveling through the Angkor temples or the streets of Phnom Penh; color, texture and culture abound.
Recycled Feed Bag Collection: originally used to house a grain that is fed to farmed fish in Vietnam, this colorful, lightweight, durable and water-resistant material is recycled into fun, fashion forward handbags great for everyday use.
Signature Wallet Collection: made from Chinese Silk and hand screen-printed, this fabric’s texture and durability is reminiscent of canvas.
The bold geometric patterns for fall 2014 are sure to be big crowd pleasers.
Cotton Screen Print Collection: the hand screen-printed cotton collection changes seasonally. 2014’s fall collection was inspired by the ikat patterns found in intricate and traditionally woven Cambodian textiles.
Fine and Raw Silk: Locally produced, the rich hues and texture of Southeast Asian silk provide the framework for beautifully crafted bags that are perfect for a special occasion or an evening on the town.
