My name is Soizic and I am the owner of MALAGASY DESIGNS.
I was very blessed to grow up in various French tropical places, and spent a few years on Reunion Island in the Indian ocean as a teenager. That's where I discovered Madagascar's art and craft. Indeed, these two islands are very close geographically and you cannot go to a market in Reunion without being exposed to Malagasy culture. Reunion is a stunning island, which I absolutely recommend visiting by the way!
Like Reunion, Madagascar is a fascinating island, with so many different landscapes, flora and fauna, and its people are really friendly, beautiful and amazingly creative. My parents lived in Madagascar for a few years before I was born, and our house was filled with lovely objects and furniture from there. I added quite a bit to our collection over the years!
I have launched MALAGASY DESIGNS online boutique so I could bring a bit of the Malagasy culture to the UK, which is now my home. I hope you enjoy browsing this website, and if you buy anything, may it bring a bit of sunshine into your life, and in your heart!
ps: thank you very much to my wonderful friend Chrysanthe for modelling my bags for me! Also thank you so much to our wonderful customers who keep sending me pics of our bags in fabulous locations. Glad to know they are going everywhere with you!
From one island to another.
