Mata Traders loves mixing old-fashioned processes with fashion-forward silhouettes and color palettes. Most of their fabrics are made using craft traditions such as hand loom weaving and hand block printing.
But that’s only half the story...
Once upon a time, Three best friends with a serious case of wanderlust set out on an around-the-world adventure and landed in Mother India for four months. Enamoured with the people, markets, and colorful textiles, they vowed to make the country a part of their life story.
A love affair with India has evolved into Mata Traders – a design driven, fair trade brand helping to end global poverty and inspire ethical companies and consumers to change the fashion industry.
This is fashion with impact.
Their garments are sewn by members of women’s cooperatives in India and Nepal, and their work is a way out of poverty and a better future for their children. Choosing fair trade creates opportunities for women worldwide.
Mata means ‘mother’ in Hindi, and this clothing is a tribute to the female power in all of us.
