The Mala Brand

Who we are

Here at Mála, we are a small team of creatives and designers with a shared passion for sustainability, who came together with a simple idea: to create minimalist, multi-functional bags.

Our team design and make functional yet minimalist bags, pockets and more, all produced in the UK and Ireland.

Our mission

We believe that beautiful accessories should be affordable, practical and eco-friendly. We create products that make your life better without making the environment worse.
With sustainability at the heart of our ethos, all of our bags are made with full transparency and traceability in our supply chain and manufacturing processes. They are designed to be made with zero-waste pattern cutting and to be durable and long-lasting, unlike those created by the current fast fashion model of ‘planned obsolescence’.

Our Name

Mála, is the Irish word for ‘bag’. We chose this to represent our shared heritage, all of us living within Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and also because of a shared interest in heritage and textiles, particularly in the industries and trades that were once prevalent across the island of Ireland.
