Malabar_logo_primary_colors_horizontal_dark_green_edited.png

For more than 30 years, Malabar has had a worldwide reputation for color and is well known for its vibrant hand loomed cottons, silks & linens in plains, checks & stripes. It has remained faithful to them through the years. Their fabrics are sourced from small co-operatives which are run ethically and provide vital support for the small communities and villages where the mills are located.

 

The name Malabar is taken from the region in South India from which the fabrics are predominantly produced. Malabar passionately values the ancient traditions of those involved in the making of these unique and socially accountable fabrics. They work closely with the craftsmen and craftswomen to design fabrics that exemplify the beauty of handweaving. Many of the Malabar designs can only be achieved by hand. 

 

Malabar was originally founded in 1986 in the UK by textile designer and creative entrepreneur; Peter Sterck. Malabar is now owned and operated by Lyn Girdler, after the passing of Peter in 2019. Tasked with bringing this heritage brand back to life, she is working closely with the same community that has produced Malabar fabrics for more than 30 years while working with new suppliers to expand the catalog. Lyn is a former Malabar employee, and a creative entrepreneur who shares the same passion and pride for the Malabar brand and the craftsmen and craftswomen they work with.
