My name is Mariana Filipe and I am the person, the hands, behind MALGA.

MALGA was born in 2015 in Lisbon, but has always had its feet firmly planted in the Alentejo. Its origin and inspiration come from customs, ways of making and using ceramic pieces. I believe that the essential pieces were once created by someone and it makes sense to give them a new life.

In the studio, unique and functional pieces are born, always handmade and in small quantities.
The ceramics I create are intended to be simple objects to be used on a daily basis, simple but interesting, which make everyday life more beautiful.

Thank you for your visit : )

In addition to our collections, we also work with individuals, restaurants, touristic houses. We create, together, pieces that are special to them, and to us.
