MATA TRADERS GIVES OPPORTUNITIES TO CRAFTERS October 20 2015, 0 Comments

Fall is here, and Mata Traders is a great brand to help with your wardrobe transition. We have a new shipment of beautiful, autumnal styles that we know you'll fall* in love with.

More than just having beautiful clothing and accessories, they are making a difference in the lives of craftspeople they buy from. According to Maureen Dunn, Founder, while talking about the origins of Mata Traders, "As my business blossomed, so did my awareness of the conditions of poverty that exist for much of the population. I began to see my buying power there as a chance to make a difference, and on my second trip I actively sought out producer groups that paid their workers good wages and practiced the principles of fair trade."

A few of our favorites:

The Gallery Dress. The striped panels are flattering on every body, and the beautiful blue is perfectly paired with earth-toned accessories and brown boots.

 

Another favorite is the Dear Lucy Dress, with beautiful detailing on the pleated sleeves and in the perfect neutral hue.

 

On the days when it's just too chilly for a dress, we love the Mora Camp Shirt. Pair it with cords, and the chunky necklace pictured here, and your warmest coat.

*yes, that pun was intended!
