I'm Malika, the creator behind Made in Brockton Village. I've always had a soft spot for anything paper, especially notebooks and calendars. I grew up in Germany and worked many years in the corporate world as a graphic designer, though I always longed for a more creative way to bring my illustrations to life.
In 2012, I made the leap and co-founded our stationery company with my now husband Tomas. What started as a side hustle quickly grew into a full-time business. Our products are being sold in shops across Canada and the United States.
One of my ongoing goals is to make our products as sustainable as possible. From recycled paper to plastic-free packaging, I'm constantly looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint.
