“If someone would have told me 20 years ago that I’d be an ethical clothing and jewelry designer my mouth would have dropped open…who knew?”

Namaste! I'm the founder and creative director of Mata Traders, a design driven, ethical fashion brand bringing uncommonly vibrant clothing and accessories to women everywhere. My journey with 'Mother India' began in 2003, when I spent 4 months traveling the subcontinent on a round-the-world trip. Some people discover yoga in India - I found my zen shopping the markets. I decided to make yearly buying trips, importing everything from antique wall hangings to leather shoes. As my business blossomed, so did my understanding of the poverty that exists for much of the population. I realized that my buying power could make a difference, and began seeking out producer groups that pay their workers fairly and practice the principles of fair trade. We now work with 6 organizations in India and Nepal that educate, employ, and empower women in marginalized communities. Spending time with these groups with has helped us realize that even the most traditional women, when given the opportunity, thrive in a sphere of meaningful work. We've seen that equality in the workplace is possible in a country as socially stratified as India - whether a beginner sewer or production manager, all the women that make our clothing and accessories have a voice. We are so proud to be a part of that voice by bringing their quality handiwork to the socially conscious, stylishly adventurous woman.
