Malia Designs is a socially responsible fair trade brand that designs and sells handbags and accessories. Their products are handcrafted in Cambodia and every purchase helps to fight human trafficking. Malia Designs was formed to increase economic opportunity for women in Cambodia and to support organizations that fight human trafficking in Southeast Asia. Their products are made by fair trade producer groups that employ disadvantaged people in Cambodia. By bringing their crafts to Western markets, they can expand their access to sustainable income.
Malia’s handmade, fashion-forward designs range from evening wear to the everyday. They are created from high quality silks, cotton screen prints blends and recycled feed and cement bags, local to Southeast Asia. They stand apart from other handbags in that they are unique and well-constructed. But most of all, choosing a handbag that serves others around the world has inspired women and men to buy these handbags time and again.
