Spring Collection: Solids

solid color fair trade apparel

When you think of Mata Traders, solid colors are probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Prints, pockets, and mixing fun fashion with fair trade production - YES. But solids? Not always what we're known for.

Well here’s some good news: our Spring/Summer 2022 collection currently has the most styles (20!) in solid fabrics that Mata has ever offered in one collection. With so many fun printed textiles available, throwing in a few solids feels like the ultimate fashion-forward move. Hey, even we like to mix it up from time to time.

Solids are our wardrobe workhorses, letting us show off a bold pair of statement earrings without any distractions, or just being there for us in the right time or place... like when all of your zebra prints are in the dirty laundry pile. Jokes aside, we know there are some fair trade fashion fans out there that might like a more simplified look, and we're glad  to have something for them, too.

From a design perspective, one of the most exciting parts of expanding our collection is that more solids means more room to play with new textiles from our production partners. This season you’ll see our colorful solid styles cut from cotton slubs, linen blends, lightweight denim, and stretchy ribbed knits. If you thought Mata was just about prints, our solids give you even more quality made options to love. Try on a few styles and see for yourself - some are just as bold as our prints!
