“We put stories back into clothing. Socially conscious, artisan made, comfortable boho chic pants for travel. Limited edition fabrics and timeless styles.” - MATTER
In a world more connected and aware than ever before, it’s refreshing to see a brand embrace real stories and real issues with real people and quality product.
Meet MATTER: a socially motivated lifestyle brand focusing on affordable luxury, thoughtful design and provenance to create travel wear with stories to tell. In the brands words, their mission is threefold - to foster designer-artisan collaborations, inspire consumers to value provenance and process, and pioneer industry change and sustainability for rural textile communities.
