Stunning new season fair trade fashion from India and Nepal.

by Andrew Williams | October 10, 2016

We are constantly amazed at the stylish new designs and fabrics which Mata Traders manage to come up with. As one of the only Mata stockists in the UK, we are always delighted when their next delivery arrives! This season we have another stunning capsule collection, featuring some on-trend patterns and a timeless little black dress. 

As always we only have very limited stock of each design in each size, so please don't miss out! We are delighted that we now have some real Mata "fans" who snap up their favourites as soon as we release a new season, so we hope you'll want to join their ranks. 

Of course, as well as providing you with another wardrobe staple, buying from our new Mata collection also helps ensure a better quality of life for the producers in India and Nepal. Let us know your favourites!

New and exclusive jewellery in the UK from Refugee Beads

by Andrew Williams | April 15, 2015

While we were in Atlanta this January meeting our friends from Mata Traders we also bumped into a new supplier - Refugee Beads. This remarkable little project helps to support the refugee community in Georgia, offering them employment as well as providing activities such as after-school clubs for children. 

We loved the story but we were completely captivated by the actual products - delicate earrings alongside chunky necklaces with a sense of humour and fun. We placed an order on the spot!

We only have a small collection of Refugee Products available right now but hope to get more once we see which ones are popular. Let us know what you think! Here's Andrew with the Refugee Beads team.

New fair trade style in stock now

by Andrew Williams | March 30, 2015

We have some incredible new dresses in stock now from our friends at Mata Traders. While we were en route to Mexico in January we stopped at a (ridiculously enormous!) trade show in Atlanta where we met up with Jonit and Emily from Mata. It was so great to be able to see their new lines in real life rather than just in photos. They have so many incredible styles that choosing was definitely the most difficult part. 

We hope to have more from Mata in stock soon, as well as more stock from Fabricas Social in Mexico City - which we were planning to have on line, but have now sold most of in the shop! We'll get more next time.
