Hello from our founder
Welcoming everyday magic
Hi, I'm Anjali Harjani, founder of Malabar Baby. I appreciate you taking the time to read our story. As a mother, I live for those moments of 'everyday magic' that I have with my family. Malabar Baby is proud to play a part in those precious moments you have; it is the part of my job that brings the most satisfaction and joy. A little bit of magic each day goes a long way to creating lasting memories.
Snuggle more, worry less
As a new mom, I struggled to find products that were sustainable, accessible, felt good after washing— and not boring! I’m a firm believer that conscious living can be luxurious and affordable.
Moving to Asia
After working in finance for 10-years in New York and London, my husband and I moved to Asia, where we now live with our son Aryan — the real inspiration behind the brand. While pregnant with Aryan, I was really excited to shop for a crib and bedding, because that was just about all that would fit into my little apartment nursery in Hong Kong!
Becoming a mom
Anyone who knows me, knows I appreciate a cozy nook, colourful cushions and comfortable bedding. I looked high and low to find bedding, swaddles and lifestyle accessories that were genuinely safe, eco-friendly, made of high-quality breathable materials — and not boring. At the time, I couldn’t find anything the was affordable or accessible and still felt good after washing.
Starting the journey
I toyed with the idea to start Malabar Baby for months. I was ‘that’ mom, who did tons of research, factory visits and had endless conversations, before deciding to quit corporate life and begin the journey with my second baby, Malabar Baby. Since then, it’s been nothing short of fun and inspiring to see Malabar Baby play a small part in the everyday precious moments with your families.
Malabar Hill is my childhood home and the namesake of our brand. It is where I was lucky enough to have had a magical childhood and much of the landscape and memories there serve as inspiration for our designs. Our hand-block printing is all done in India and natural Indian cotton serves as the foundation for many of our products.
I moved to Hong Kong with my husband and gave birth here to our son Aryan, who is in many ways my Malabar Baby muse. My family has a textile business in India and China, so it was nice to move to Hong Kong and be closer to our manufacturers. Living in Hong Kong makes international travel so accessible; the places that I have visited in our travels through Asia and beyond serve as the inspiration for many of our designs and collections.
The United States has always played a big part in my life and held a special place in my heart. New York is where I spent many of my formative years and it is where our US-team is based today. Our customers in the United States make up the biggest footprint for our brand and it is also home to some of our biggest corporate partners, Macy's and Bloomingdale's.
As you can see, Malabar Baby was born from a truly global journey and perspective. This global mindset continues today, as our collections are inspired by different incredible places around the world — New York, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom; these are all places that we have travelled to and been inspired by. I can't wait to see what inspires us next and share that with you.
