The boutique design New York at the Javits Convetion Center was an inspiration.

maleneb. was truly everything you think she would be! Meeting both Gary (her business partner) and Malene were like meeting old friends. Her talent and dedication to the business is very impressive. Starting at a very young age she wanted to do something with art. Her design is built around the authentic image. Malene b is a Brooklyn based carpet designer with a multi-disciplinary background in textile arts, painting and illustration from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology.

For more than a decade, Malene b has been creating carpets for industry professionals and private label brands. Now, with the launch of her own company, Malene b- Custom Handmade Carpets, her collection's are showcased in showrooms across the US and Canada. In addition, her work has been featured in several national and international magazines such as Interior Design, New York Magazine and Hospitality Design.

Malene b’s unique carpets, inspired by her international travels, boldly interpret cultural icons, landscapes and rituals in an entirely fresh and personal way. Her passion for all things cultural stems from Malene b’s world travels to places like Dakar, Mumbai and Kuala Lumpur. Malene b personally designs each carpet to fit perfectly into your environment. Her signature style incorporates the use of three dimensional hand sculpting techniques resulting in varied surfaces, pile heights and textures.

It is important for Malene b to be socially conscious in all her endeavors. To that end, she proudly supports Goodweave and Aid to Artisans in their quest to eliminate child labor practices, provide education and preserve handmade crafts in Africa, Asia and South America.
