Craftsmanship from all over the world
Silk is a precious material that should be treated with the uttermost care, from fiber to fabric. At MALA CHETTY we are proudly working with the best tailors out there and the world’s most renowned print and fabric makers. Their crafts have resulted in us being able to work with the most luxurious and light weight silk. The mastered skills of our amazing artisans are a big attribute MALA CHETTY’s allure. Here is how we seamlessly work together to create our amazing garments.
The creation of our garments
After loving and appreciating fashion for years, Mala found ways of expressing herself through creating beautiful and exquisite fashion designs. From the start, this process simply begins at home with sketching the visuals of her imagination. Where Mala designed her first collection at her kitchen table, she now often operates from her at-home atelier in the Netherlands. Here she designs her remarkable creations, using the inspiration she finds in her travels and in nature.
From fabrics to garments
For our collections we are working with two custom made silk fabrics. Our 100% organic handwoven silk from Vietnam is dyed by hand with solely natural ingredients. The coloring of these fabrics is partially done by hand and requires a lot of experimenting from the artisans. Other garments, including the printed ones are made from high-quality authentic Crêpe de Chine that is made exclusively for MALA CHETTY in Italy. For the prints, we often derive inspiration from nature, which results in hand-designed and unique patterns.
After the silk production is completed, the exclusive fabrics are brought to our own Dutch atelier. Here, our fantastic tailor crafts the silk into high-quality and unique garments for our collections.
