Hello and Welcome to Malabar Baby! I appreciate you taking the time to read our story and hopefully if you aren’t a client already you will see why there is magic in our products and the Malabar Baby story.
I founded Malabar Baby about 5 years ago and before that I used to work in Finance for 10 years in New York and London. My husband and I now live in Asia with our son Aryan who is the real inspiration behind the brand. Anyone who knows me well, knows I appreciate a cozy nook, colorful cushions and good cozy bedding. While pregnant, I was really excited to shop for a crib and bedding because that was just about all that would fit into my little HK apartment nursery room!
I looked high and low to find bedding, swaddles and lifestyle accessories that were genuinely safe, eco-friendly, made of high-quality breathable materials, and not boring! It was honestly a tall order and nothing I could find at the time was affordable or accessible or felt very good after going in the washing machine. I toyed with the idea to start Malabar Baby for months. I was THAT mom who did tons of research, factory visits and had endless conversations with my family who are actually in the manufacturing world, before deciding to quit my corporate life and begin the journey with my second baby, Malabar Baby. It’s been nothing short of fun and inspiring to be part of your everyday memories. Thank you once again, for following our story and being part of the fabric.
Soft and sustainable
From the day we started we knew creating long-lasting sustainable products for you and your baby was our mission. With COVID we have personally seen Malabar Baby find a special place in our client’s daily routines and the importance of buying meaningful products for the home and daily routines couldn’t be more important. The products we design, the amazing artisan artisans we collaborate with in India and the community are unique at Malabar Baby and the reason why we come to work everyday!
An artisan's touch
We love products with a story and soul and that’s why each piece at Malabar Baby evokes a feeling and embodies a story. Over the last 5 years we have worked with the same artisans and manufacturers in India and China and have spent time immersing ourselves in the craft of block-printing. Our pieces take days and sometimes weeks to make by hand and remind us that there is irreplaceable beauty in slowly-made pieces with a human story. No piece is ever the same – just like each one of us – simply special.
A global affair
Our designers hail from all corners of the globe and all walks of life, including the United States of America, Mumbai, and Hong Kong. We are proud to share with your child a truly international project that we believe represents the best the world has to offer.
All of our bedding is inspired by mesmerizing cities from around the globe. Each unique collection strives to capture the nuances of those regions and convey the vibrant energy that pulses through its streets.
