Maria Maleta

This the tale about two best friends with an obvious passion for fashion and handbags. If the first love sweets, the second one prefers salty snacks. If one likes movies, the other one prefers music. If one likes quiet places, the other one prefers parties. One of them will be forever the sentimental girl, and the other the rational girl. The list goes on. However, there is one thing they have in common, a big friendship from which Maria Maleta's has born.

Maria Maleta is a Portuguese brand of design leather goods, that only works with genuine leather underlining the quality of raw materials and the best production of Portugal. Created by two best friends so different of each other, made them believe that every person has two personal sides, therefore most of our products reflect that versatility as they can be used in many different ways. That is the freedom to be expressed in a timeless product.
