    The handcrafted Alex Tablecloth from Malaika Linens is a true work of art. This beautiful taupe and terracotta linen tablecloth is made with appliqué chequers that create a checkered, patchwork pattern. This design is inspired by summers in cosmopolitan Alexandria, Egypt, where laughter and the music of Dalida fill the air. No matter the occasion, this stylish linen elevates any meal setting and brings luxury to the dining table.
    Skilled craftswomen employed by Malaika Linens carefully craft these tablecloths by hand. Due to the time-intensive handmade process, each tablecloth is a unique labor of love. No two tablecloths are exactly alike.

    Margarita Andrade and Goya Gallagher are the founders of Malaika Linens. In 2004 in Cairo, Egypt, Andrade and Gallagher opened their business and began producing high-quality bed linens with Egyptian cotton. In 2009, Malaika built its own factory and had 60 craftswomen employed there. Then, in 2018, Andrade and Gallagher opened their own embroidery school. The entrepreneurs are committed to empowering local women by teaching them the craft of hand-embroidery. Once women are skilled in the craft of sewing, they leave the school and become artisans who work at home or at Malaika's factory.
