ABOUT

A young, innovative and natural textile-oriented brand, Malìa lab was born in Calabria in 2016, more specifically in Guardavalle Marina, a small town of 2000 souls on the Ionian coast.
The idea of ​​creating a fashion atelier where to combine craftsmanship and innovative organic fabrics comes from Flavia Amato, a young Calabrian stylist and pattern maker, who returned to her region after an eight-year training course in the Marche, made up of universities courses and internships in companies.
The choice is not accidental, it hides a strong desire for revenge, redemption and pride, the pride of those who dream that their example can serve others and be followed. It is not easy to do business in a harsh, hard and little-known territory, but it is a wonderful challenge as it is rich in history, quality.
