Zero Vest is designed for the woman on the go. She can wear nothing but basics and the moment she put’s on the vest — she is transformed and ready to take on the world. The vest is being held together by five snaps allowing for multiple ways of wear. All edges are raw except the armholes which gives it an edgy feel.

The garment is made using ECONYL® regenerated yarn and is designed on a zero waste pattern which minimizes waste. The left-over fabrics has been up-cycled into other garments. For each pink zero vest sold a portion of the vest’s proceeds will go to cancer research.

New York-based MALAIKA inspires a futuristic and minimalistic aesthetic while keeping sustainable design practices at the forefront of all creations. Founded on Earth Day of April 2016, MALAIKA’s garments are designed and handmade in New York with a deliberate, two-fold purpose. Purpose for the wearer and propose for the environment. The brand aims to eliminate environmental detriments by utilizing minimal or zero waste patterns while maximizing wearability by producing a luxe-quality, contemporary line that remain in style now and in the future. For each item sold, a tree is planted for The Canopy Project.

MALAIKA furthers sustainability efforts by integrating up-cycled materials like plastics and regenerative fabrics.
