Malicious Women Co is a woman-owned, and women-run business that creates honest and ethically-made products. While MWC appears brash and in-your-face, the story behind the company is one of heartbreak, but also of resiliency, strength, and empowerment.
In 2016, MWC founder Lacie Marsh-Carroll lost her long-time best friend to depression and suicide. Pile tragedy on more tragedy with her close family members suffering their own traumas and in a matter of months Lacie hit rock bottom. As heartbroken and lost as Lacie was, she had to figure out how to keep moving forward.
