About us

MaLa Handworks


Our clothings from MaLa Handworks Shop are simple, unique and elegant. Handmade with love from me, my friends and family in Hollywood, Maryland USA

I made my first kaftan when I was 7 years old, back in my little home village in Northeast Thailand. The women in my village were known for making handmade fabrics and turning them into beautiful garments so being surrounded by them helped me learn the skills of crafting kaftan early in life. As I grew up, my passion for making kaftans grew along with my drive to be an entrepreneur. I was constantly working and bettering myself to make the best products possible. Even though designing clothing has always been my passion, making it my full time job didn't become a reality until my husband and I moved to Maryland, USA, where I invested my savings in some materials and started an Etsy account to make my dreams a reality. It started out very small with myself as my only employee and has only grown since. We are still a small online shop, with a small team but we have big plans. This is my true passion and I want to make the best products I can to share with the world, that is why my team and I pride ourselves on quality and comfort, I want to be sure I carry on the traits the women of my village taught me not so long ago.

Thank you for supporting my dream!

We are located in Hollywood, Maryland USA and are an online only shop.
