Mata Traders is a fair trade fashion company, and we take both parts of that description very seriously.  Our clothes and jewelry are manufactured by women’s cooperatives and artisan groups in developing countries that pay fair wages and provide safe working conditions.  Our designs mix old-fashioned processes–such as hand loom weaving and hand block printing–with fashion-forward silhouettes and contemporary color palettes. Mata’s mission is to bring fair trade clothing to the forefront of the fashion industry–and to bring fashion to fair trade.

Our unique garments empower both the women who make them and the women who wear them.  We believe that women shouldn’t have to make trade offs between style and ethics.  Mata makes fashion women feel good in–and feel good about.  In Hindi, mata means “mother,” and our clothing is a tribute to the female shakti power in all of us.
