Student Real Talk: Student entrepreneur Avital on slow fashion and ethics

In this episode of Student Real Talk, Naomi talks with Psychology-student Avital. One-and-a-half years ago, she started slow fashion brand Maleo together with her partner Max.

Maleo is an African-style, ethical, slow fashion brand. In this episode we focus on the brand and what it takes to be an ethical entrepreneur. What barriers come with that and how does Avital communicate with her employees in Senegal. Why did she decide to start a fashion brand while she’s not even into fashion? And how did she create a trustworthy partnership in Senegal?

Got curious about Maleo after the podcast? You can find their fashion in the local shop Mythopia and also in cafe MasMas. You can also order their clothes on their website.
