Story of Nala
nala is a product line by La Scheers Co., an advertising and design agency based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It draws from the wealth of inspiration Malaysia’s melting pot of Chinese, Malay and Indian culture has to offer.
Colourful, timeless and unique, this range has grown from just stationery to include accessories and home ware. Be it a note card to cheer up a friend or throw pillows to brighten up a room, nala will make your world a bit more beautiful.
nala means successful in Swahili and is also the name of founder of nala, Lisette Scheer’s daughter. Lisette first started nala as a way to revive the forgotten art of letter writing and began modestly with a collection of stationery called Pretty in Peranakan based on Straits Chinese porcelain. Over the years it grew into brand that believed in preserving Malaysia's beautiful heritage but in a contemporary way.
Born in Singapore, raised in Malaysia, her multi-cultural background informs the way she creates and this exclusive range continues to be well received in specialty bookstores and gift shops around the world.
