As we greatly expand our apparel and accessories offerings, we recently began a new partnership with Mata Traders. Their fair-trade fashion collection is inspiring, from design to execution. We're confident that once you get to know more about what's behind it all, you'll want to add even more Mata Traders' pieces to your wardrobe. Here are five essentials on how they keep their business mission-focused.
Bring your style, your quirk, your ideas, your chutzpah to the table.
Aim to make a worldwide impact on poverty and empower women everywhere. Don't underestimate what we can accomplish together.
We are all concerned and we celebrate each other as friends, women, and global citizens.
Our global citizenship makes us conscious consumers — we're thoughtful about the things we buy and know that origins and production processes matter.
Bring a spirit of discovery to your everyday.
Besides these core principles, Mata's business practices demonstrate serious commitment. The fair-trade cooperatives support artisans in their efforts to overcome exploitation, poverty, and illiteracy by providing a fair wage, safe working conditions, and health insurance. They also ensure there is no child labor and develop community resources such as after-school programs and computer training.
