By Malina has during the past years been working on developing more sustainable styles, not only seeing our great silk materials as long-lasting and contributing to buying less and using longer. Now incorporating materials such as cotton to organic cotton, Econyl and recycled polyester. All our denim is now made in Italy and all in organic cotton.
We also work with 100% recycled polyester material, used in various styles – everything from flirty blouses, silhouette hugging dresses and beachy kaftans. Still keeping the great material and of course the irresistible patterns. A part of the swimwear is made in Portugal and in a new material called Econyl and recycled Nylon.
“I always say to people to keep their core values and unique idea as a brand today. It is as important to look up, look around and evaluate the world around you. Keeping your core idea but developing with the world. Right now, what is important is us and our earth, the environment is suffering from various industries – fashion being one of the biggest contributors and everybody has to take responsibility. That’s why I think it's important for By Malina to take our part, start developing more sustainable styles and move in the right direction”
