It’s about acknowledging that nothing in fashion is 100% sustainable. Yet striving to achieve it daily.
Searching for natural materials and valuing every single person along the supply chain.
It’s about providing high-end desirable alternatives. Shattering trend-driven habits and creating satisfaction - where ‘this one’ may just be enough.
Helping our customers make wise choices - to buy not only less, but better. And taking pride in their possessions. For the future of their children. And that of humanity.
It's about the colourful Mara Hoffman girls and Stella-r socialites. The empowered Nina Skarras of the Scandinavian world. The #bongirls with that Aussie vibe, and the Reformation LA crowd.
And now it’s also about Mati. The Italian Collective of producers, artisans, suppliers, influencers and our tribe. Creating a future for tradition by unlocking abundance with innovation.
And getting others to join us to be what’s truly beautiful in this world.
Mati Collective grows as we search for more ways to be sustainable. Our partners include raw material suppliers, textile producers, artisans and above all, people who buy our products.
As we build the future of Italian tradition, we create a new normal. High-end designer handbags made of cotton, hemp and cellulose are not the usual order for traditional artisans used to working with leather. Unless a designer as determined, yet gentle, as Mati calls and a consumer as mindful as you falls in love with it.
The Dicart group is a well-established supplier of materials to Italian luxury brands that make leather goods. They use FSC certified cellulose (paper) for their manufacture. FSC is an international NGO that manages forest protection and ensures real benefits to local communities living near them.
Maeko makes its natural fabrics near Turin, Italy, with respect for the environment and the individual. The founder started by experimenting with hemp in the noughties, making it softer yet more durable, and have since added nettle, soy, crabyon, bamboo, linen, organic cotton to their sustainable materials.
