Our goal is a simple one, to inspire others to live balanced and creative lives

Mali are Mark and Ali. Creatives who spent a year travelling.... working less, spending less and learning to enjoy life's little moments.

Studio Mali is a place where you will find free travel advice, inspiration and can catch up with our life-changing voyage to find balance in our lives. We also create and sell our own products inspired by our adventures.

Delve into our site to learn more about our journey from the 9-to-5 rat race to travel minded designers...

Travel Inspired Design

Travel helped us follow our dream of starting a design studio and making objects that we really care about. We delved deep into our travel experiences to create products with stories, inspired by the incredible world around us.

Our aim to make beautiful pieces for you to enjoy, at an affordable price.

Got to be starting something...

Travel kick-started the whole idea of changing our lives back at home.
