Admire the graphic, geometric decoration of our Frieze Vase. It takes inspiration from the Mamluks in decorative arts and metalwork. Fill it with fresh flowers or use it as a decorative centerpiece.
Malaika has collaborated with a skilled artisan in Old Cairo who crafts every vase by hand. Each one is unique and an artwork in its own right.

This product is entirely handcrafted, so please allow for slight imperfections, little colour differences, and minor sizing differentiation. We believe these differences encapsulate the beauty and charm of handmade items. Every piece is unique, making it a work of art in itself.
We recommend hand washing in warm water and drying. Please do not place in the microwave, directly on top of a burner, or in the oven. Using harsh scrubbing cream or pads to clean can scratch the surface. Fayoum pottery is meant to be used, held and enjoyed on a daily basis. Proper care and handling of the pieces will help retain their beauty and function for years.
Malaika was founded in 2004 by Margarita Andrade and Goya Gallagher who, after growing up in their native Ecuador, found themselves living and settling in Egypt. With a background in design and a keen interest in embroidery, crochet and hand-drawn thread work, they decided to utilize Egyptian cotton to produce high quality bed linen previously not available in the local market.
At the heart of its business model, Malaika focuses on teaching hand embroidery to local women giving them a chance to learn a valuable skill and improve their economic standing.
