Malka Dina

Brooklyn, NY

Behind MALKA DINA is artist/designer Elana Noy. A New York City native, Elana is based in Brooklyn, NY; where she handcrafts her designs in her studio. Elana created MALKA DINA to be a lifestyle brand with an interdisciplinary vision that seeks to create environments where her aesthetic is evident in anything she decides to make. From metal smithing to handmade pottery to handwoven textiles, Elana almost solely utilizes techniques that were invented hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago. As she approaches these mediums and means of production, she looks for unexplored territory in technical approach and formal innovation. Her objective is to continue experimenting with these mediums to create objects unlike anything that has been seen before.
