At Maria Malo we choose to work with ecological TENCEL jeans, a sustainable fabric composed of mixed wood fibers, such as eucalyptus, that is, fast-growing plants and trees that regenerate quickly, they do not need to be harvested because they grow naturally and to those that use very low impact production techniques.
TENCEL production also wins points for its low water use compared to cotton production.
Today, my dear and admired virtual friend Koko, discovers with his work a reality that is far from being in balance and invites us to reflect not only in relation to our waste in the sea.

Talking about the Big Issues (environmentalism, activism, sustainability, ethics) can be uncomfortable. Opinions differ. Definitions differ. The moral bases differ.

It’s challenging to begin a blog post that aims to share positivity and hopefulness with words like ‘pandemic’ and ‘coronavirus’.

While on the other side of the planet all my loved ones have been in confinement for long weeks, today in Bali the new year is celebrated on a day of silence, it is Nyepi. (This year by government decision it will be two days)
Tradition indicates that the Balinese must abstain from any activity for 24 hours and is summarized in 4 “amati”
Amati geni (refrain from lighting fires or lights)
Amati karya (refrain from work)
Amati lelanguan (refrain from leisure activities)
Amati lelungan (refrain from leaving home)
It is time to practice meditation and fasting, for spiritual purification through self-control and introspection.
We believe the world is experiencing a renaissance. A leap. A giant shift in consciousness. For way too long, feminine qualities (not to mention women themselves) have been cast off and hidden away in favour of the masculine.. The balance is shifting today, lovelies, and if there’s anything we’d like you to take from this little post is our invitation to tap into your wild side, your feminine side, your sacred centre. Give yourself permission to heal, nurture, tune in.
With changing seasons on the brain, we thought we’d roll out a helpful guide to choosing some pieces from our sustainable, organic clothing collection to help take your carefully selected wardrobe from summer to autumn -- this year and for many years to come
