I first learned about the work of Malene B. from blogger Ericka Taylor at JuBella. After viewing Malene’s work, I immediately fell in love. It offers a wonderful fusion of cultural identity, modern design, and traditional rug making techniques. The result is something that everyone would want in their home.
Formerly a textile designer for some of the top names in design – Nate Berkus, Martha Stewart and Nicole Miller to name a few – Malene B.’s custom handmade carpets come with a wonderful point of view. A celebration of culture, travel, and global style, each carpet provides a view into a different part of the world.
Malene B. designs are also socially conscious. The company partners with RugMark and Aid to Artisans to ensure that child labor is not used and to preserve handmade craftsmanship in Africa, Asia and South America.
I am so excited about Malene’s new line, and can’t wait to see what’s next. You can also read more about Malene B. over at Get Togetha, where Melinda did a wonderful interview with her.
