Malai Studio: accessories made from unique coconut leather

We made it!

Nov 29, 2019

Dear backers our campaign has finished today few hours ago successfully! 

Thank you all so so much for your support - we couldn't make it without your help :-) 

We managed to raise 123% of the pledged amount and that's amaaaaazing!

The first phase of the campaign is over, the second one begins now. In the following months we will concentrate on improving equipment in our production and making materials & products as your rewards. 

There's a lot to look forward to! 

New special reward added!

Nov 22, 2019

Dear backers thank you so much for your support so far. We have 7 more days to reach our target and only 7% more missing, yaaay! 

We are glad you were able to chose something nice for yourself or your loved ones from our choice of rewards. 

But maybe you have an idea to make something special that we don't offer yet or you might know about somebody who'd like the idea of this. 

We have prepared a special offer for you that will last only for the next 7 days!

We are offering you Malai biocomposite sheets for a special price for this occassion - all gsm and all colours have a unified price. This offer is limited to purchase of 5 sheets at the time. Apart from the materials you would also get our brand new swatchbook including all the colors we make Malai in :-)

Our sheets have a standard size 120x80cm and are available in 3 types of gsm ( 450 / 550 / 750 ) and 9 color shades.

We have added new rewards and new photos!

Nov 13, 2019

Dear supporters :-) 

We have reached wonderful 85% today, thank you all so so much for your support, this is encouraging! 

We have registered that maybe some of you wondered about the possibilty of visiting us in Kerala but the trips we were offering here are already sold out. Hence we decided to add 2 more, see if you're up for it ;-)

We have also added new pictures to the google drive. This time you can see our products on a model - thanks to charming Luciana for help.

  • 1 Unique object / tote designed by Libena Rochova

    Are you thinking of getting something real reaaaal special from us?
    We have a unique treat, let us tell you more :
    We have been lucky enough to collaborate with one of Czech republic's most respected fashion designers and artsist Mrs. Libena Rochova.
    She was actually one of the first designers whom we showed Malai to back in 2017!
    For our campaign Mrs. Libena prepared one of a kind design we love more and more day by day. Simple in its construction and form, this object can be used in many ways.
    Combined with an orange cotton bag and stripy strap it can be worn as a casual tote bag.
    Left on its own it aquires almost sculptural qualities and becomes a beautiful feature in your interior decor.
    Beauty truly is in simplicity and I think here is the proof of it :-)

    Shipping included.
