I am so very honored to announce the launch of my new company: Malena!

My life's work as an international human rights lawyer, with a focus on innovative approaches to economic development, and conversations with people all over the world, have taught me that we all want the same things: health, something to believe in, to belong, and a chance for a better tomorrow.

This is why I founded Malena, where you can shop gorgeous, ethical goods that tell a story and empower people w...orldwide. Our vision for Malena is to continue to invest in innovative ways to support everyone's right to dignity, agency, and opportunity.

Thank you so much for your amazing encouragement on this adventure to support economic empowerment for people around the world.
