Mata Traders is a fair trade clothing and accessories company based in Chicago, IL. All of our products are designed locally and handmade in India and Nepal by women's cooperatives and artisan groups. Our products are handmade using artistic traditions such as block-printing and embroidery...no factory production here. Combine that with flattering design and a flair for color, and you've got the Mata look. But that's just half the story - this is fashion with impact. For our producers, it's an opportunity to make a better life for their families. Choosing fair trade means you're helping fight global poverty. Mission: At Mata Traders we believe that giving women economic power and viable working skills can transform a community (and so the world) and is the surest way to combat poverty. That's why all of our fair trade clothing and accessories are handmade in India by women's cooperatives and artisan groups. Livable wages, good working conditions, no assembly line factory production -- that's what you're getting when you shop Mata Traders.
