Whilst away on a buying trip for AW15 in Barcelona we had a chat with Jesus and Marijo from Malahierba at their shop and showroom to find out a little more behind their brand
How did Malahierba begin? With work experiences in different areas of the fashion industry, Marijo and Jesus met whilst working for Camper and decided to collaborate and create their own fashion brand. Starting by producing samples and first exhibiting alongside two other small Spanish labels at the fashion trade fair Bread + Butter in Barcelona in January 2008 and then again in June 2008. The brand has come a long way since then and their new shop is now well established and other boutiques are starting to open up in the area too.
What's next for Malahierba? Always keen to promote Spanish manufacturing, all the garments are designed and manufactured in Spain using high quality fabrics with their own unique designs. They look to grow the label further with more stockists not only in Spain but worldwide. With publicity of the brand via bloggers and social media, watch out for future collaborations too.
Go visit their lovely shop, where you can find the whole Malahierba collection (including limited editions), accessories by "Sew a Song" and "Lucuix", porcelains by "Chichinabo" and Victoria shoes. All manufactured in Spain.
