Malaika

Malaika was founded in 2004 by Margarita Andrade and Goya Gallagher who, after growing up in their native Ecuador, found themselves living and settling in Egypt. With a background in design and a keen interest in hand techniques such as embroidery, crochet and hand-drawn thread work they decided to utilize Egyptian cotton to produce top quality bed linens previously not available in the local market. At the heart of its business model Malaika focuses on teaching hand embroidery to local women giving them a chance to learn a valuable skill and improve their economic standing. Since the inauguration of its first line in 2004 Malaika has expanded its business dramatically and is proudly producing luxury bed linen and accessories with the confidence that they are able to deliver a quality product, whilst empowering the lives of many women.
