Today’s company feature has been a favorite of mine for awhile- Malia Designs! Malia Designs products are made by Fair Trade producer groups in Cambodia, with a focus on education and empowerment. You can learn more about Maila Designs' mission and impact here, or check out thier social media feeds for a look behind the scenes!
If you’re a bit more reserved in your fashion choices (like me!), the Khmer collection is going to be more your style . With sturdy fabric, classic shapes, and subtle, neutral patterns, these bags can go well with everything!
I chose the small messenger bag in ash to review (and give away- so watch for it in the big ethical giveaway later this month!). I love the option of a smaller-sized messenger bag- being a short girl, carrying a gigantic tote or crossbody tends to make me look a bit like a kid trying to carry their dad’s suitcase or something. ;-) This little number is sleek, compact, and just the right size for an everyday bag.
There’s a copious amount of pockets and the construction is pretty rugged and durable- which is necessary if you’re as tough on your bags and totes as I am. I love that the corners on this bag are reinforced with piping, since the corners are generally the first part to wear out.
