This means that the women who make our clothing are paid a livable wage, and work in safe and fair conditions. Mata Traders uses traditional fabrics that support weavers and block printers throughout India, whose livelihood has been endangered by the shift of garment production to the factory. Most of our fabrics are hand-woven, and the vibrant colors come from environmentally-safe vegetable dyes and traditional block printing processes.
