Partnering with Mata Traders mean partnering with Fair Trade Certified artisan co-ops across India and believing in "fashion for a better world".

learn craftsmanship and personal and professional business processes
receive educational resources they likely would not have access to otherwise
are empowered to work outside of the home to become entrepreneurs
receive health care, paid maternity leave, retirement pensions and daycare
utilize a worldwide platform to celebrate their traditional craft
understand how their work can end poverty and child labor
Can you see now how your purchase of something as simple as a pair of earrings can change the world? It's awesome isn't it?!
