Global Clothing by MATTER Takes Cues from Cultures Around the World

MATTER describes itself as a "socially motivated lifestyle brand" that is focused on connecting communities around the world with an opportunity to tell their unique stories through gorgeous global clothing pieces.

The distinctive patterns on the garments are created with blockprinting, but with a modern twist that updates a technique that has been used on fabric for thousands of years. For instance, the brand's wide-leg Leharia pants take inspiration from Vietnam, while the Dhoti style adapts a motif used by the hunters of the Indus Valley. MATTER created an entire video series to educate consumers who want to dive deeper into the origin stories of each pattern.

To add to the beauty of its collection of globally inspired garments, MATTER selects natural materials like cotton to accent the handprinted, hand-dyed garments.
