The Kangura motif is a print we love for its design and its story. Traditionally used as a border for Rajasthani houses, the architectural Kangura print is a sign of protection and defense of loved ones. The triangles signify powerful spikes, while a triumvirate of black lines bless new homes with a strong foundation.
Three things to love about this Classic Wideleg: poplin weave, organic cotton, and watermelon pink.
On my way to work today with my favourite plastic bag from @coopita_asia @aarohana_ecosocial and #pantstoseetheworldin by @matterprints I was invited by DBS Innovates recently to share on my blog on what I think about local social enterprises, and I wrote about how much I want to shop with a conscience this year by going local, supporting sustainable and backing social and ethical causes (link in bio ) - it’s conscious living for me in 2018, for sure . Featured here are two local businesses I love for their sustainable cause and their passion for slow fashion. Psst, the tote is made from all upcycled plastic weaved by artisans in India represented locally and the pants inspire wearers to value provenance . #upcycled #mattertribe #matterprints #whomakesyourclothes #whomakesmybags #sustainableliving #sustainablefashion #ecosocial #ethicalfashion #supportlocal
Running errands in #matterprints
Thinking a lot about ways to simplify our routine in the New Year. We want to be as productive as possible, so we can serve our clients to the best of our abilities. Do you have any tips? We’d love to hear them! #maynemarketing
The intention behind our hybrid production model is to bridge the gap between traditional artisanship and modern design principles for urban markets. We believe that for rural craft to thrive, we need to build a network that creates access to the market, providing products that, through good design, stand on their own two feet. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
To 2018 and all the adventures to come - we're ready for you.
Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas and spent plenty of time with your loved ones eating and drinking too much 🙈❤️ . Next up - NYE! Any plans yet? Whatever you end up doing why not make a statement and keep warm with this generously proportioned scarf from @matterprints 👌🧣 This snowy weather doesn’t mean you you gotta look frumpy 😉⛄️ . #naiise #naiiseuk #nye #matter #matterprints #scarf #ethical #cotton #silk #pomegranate #pomegranatemotif #handprinted #blockprint #statementpiece #accessory
We’re big believers in the mantra that great things are done by a series of small things brought together – in our case, every product that we send out into the world, to your doorstep, is a small ripple of change. It is change in the form of believing in the universally binding value of textile artisanship, appreciating the beauty of handmade prints and weaves, and supporting the livelihoods of rural artisan communities. Happy holidays #mattertribe
Every print has a story that ties them to a place a time with a cultural story of its own. Traditionally used as a border design for Rajasthani houses, the architectural Kangura print is a sign of protection and defense of loved ones. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
“Project Aipan is my small effort to revive the diminishing art and culture of Kumaon. The name Aipan, is derived from a form of art traditionally done by women, passed on from mothers to their daughters.” Inspired by the traditional folk art of Kumaon, these motifs speak to Preetika’s childhood - a reflective spirit of the mountain and its people. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
What I’m getting from this is that...you lot like the idea that I can have this physique and physical strength, while I fly around eating (and drinking ) carbs, ideally dressed in @matterprints Sounds about right, and also, like a pretty hopeful message to take into 2018. #whattheworldneedsnowiscarbs #2017bestnine . . . . #wecouldallusealittlehope #butleofeelsrejected #noonelikesmycookinganymore #whosaysdietfoodismiserable #thebrunoisedlife #matterprints #pantstoseetheworldin #ethicalfashion #breadaheadbakery #doughnuts #woodlandssd #yoga #spartanrace #spartanracehk #physique #cathaypacific #marcopoloclub #oneworld #lifewelltravelled #hk #hkig #fitness #fitspo #fitfam #macros #otr #ontheregimen #mikevacanti
We field tested the amazing @matterprints trousers a few months ago and we’re very excited to see the the field write up on their website now! Woop! If you want to read more about us, who we are, our experiences and read on of Katie’s poems, head over there now! 😍 @matterprints https://matterprints.com/journal/people/fieldtested-the-saiint-sisters/
This year has been one rollercoaster ride - emotionally, mentally, physically. I'm thankful for the ups, the downs, and the ones in between. There were more "downs" than I ever expected. However, it made me learn to celebrate the little things; to look for glimpses of hope in the everyday. It was and still is a humbling experience. I'm most grateful for the people who held my hand during the ride and continue to do so. If you’re in the same boat, I can’t promise you the plot twist you’re waiting for. All I know is that it’ll eventually get better. ✨
By default, given the principles and seasonality of our artisan production, we cannot partake in the world of fast fashion. Taking into account this inherent slowness, we create seasonless styles with seasonal fabrics, meaning all our products are timelessly designed with the intention to last you through the years to come. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
Definitely traveling the world with this piece. Stay tuned for OOTD! #matterprints
Guys, remember scarves? I miss scarves. So I traded in my statement necklace today for this beauty. Only to be upstaged by my new PETTYCOAT! My #dressember game is ON today! . I have been blown away by your support in this adventure. Thank you to each and every one of you who have given on my fundraising page so far. Together, we are making a difference! . It isn't too late to be part of the change!

Change beyond textiles is... Join in the conversation to #ChangeBeyondTextiles and finish the sentence above. From now until Dec 15th, comment below and let us know what you think. We'll pick three of you and send something special your way.
“Maybe you don’t have a passion for the fashion industry. Maybe you don’t think twice about the clothes you’re wearing. But… if you care about the environment, if you care about climate change, if you care about poverty alleviation, if you care about women’s empowerment, I encourage you to look no further than the clothes you’re putting on each morning.” We’re ruminating over these powerful words shared by Patrick Woodyard, the Co-Founder of @nisoloshoes As we wrap up on the end of the year and move towards a time of buying (for ourselves and others ), we want to take a step back and reflect on the relationship we have with our clothes, and why that matters in our journey to #ChangeBeyondTextiles
#ChangeBeyondTextiles is our commitment to make rural artisan production sustainable, shift designers’ approach to their process, and inspire customers to value provenance. Read about our journey that brought us here - on the journal.
Meet our latest print to the Monpe family: All Eye Charcoal. Bold in monochrome, this is our modern reinterpretation of the all eye motif, a protection charm from the ancient times.
Not pictured: You using The Folio Foldover two ways, as a laptop case and a clutch.
About 3.5 years ago on 18.04.2014 I travelled on these exact train tracks on the #hobaillets party train from Colombo to Galle for the beautiful wedding party @travellator & @adesbaillets I continue to wish them both love good health happiness joy and laughter. Love you both! PS: #matterprints is great for travel ❤️
How we feel about our block party tonight. See you at 7pm on Haji Lane, we'll be the ones with the pants.
Friends in Singapore - see you tomorrow at 7 for our block party on Haji Lane. PS - there'll be a Christmas lucky draw with prizes from a $100 gift card to a Warrior #MATTERwrap Come for the pants, stay for the perks.
The Koa motif is inspired by William Morris, the leading influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement, and his first woodblock print. In our reinterpretation, we kept the crescent curve of his signature Flora & Fauna language while adding geometric elements of our own to its arrangement. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
crying cuz i walked thru the entire store cradling this $30 shark but food > unnecessary plush toys so farewell sweet shark i sure will miss you. 📷: @azablanka
Designed exclusively for the UK, the Koa motif is our tribute to the legacy of William Morris - the leading influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement who advocated for traditional craftsmanship and brought art back to people. The Jasmine Trellis was the first woodblock print he did on paper and we felt it was only fitting to use it as our inspiration for this pattern.
Love my #matterprints lounge lunghi + falcon prints . It’s extremely comfortable in breathable cotton and yet stylish with the wrap sides and tie around cord . Today, I brought it round my work world but looking forward to seeing the world in them . My little one always says mama wears dancing shoes when she sees me in these. Now to win a pair for her to dance along with me . . #ootd #instastyle #friday #mattertribe #supportsg #travelshoes #itstheweekend #travel #wanderlust #clothesthattellastory #artisanal #trydifferentstyle #goodbyetomymane #supportlocal #anothersoleday4ofjoyfulgiving
With inspiration from the kepenek, a coat worn by shepherds in Iran in the mountains, the Chenelle Jacket is our modern reinterpretation of the traditional silhouette. 1 style, 2 prints - we've also made them to be reversible. You know where to find it.
Keep an eye out for our latest print tomorrow. Plus, it'll come in a new and reversible style. Hint: think colder weather.
Coming soon. A new motif in our classic unisex style. Location: @lloydsinn

Meet the Koa Chenelle Jacket, a transitional essential hand-loomed from khadi cotton, Ghandi's 'Fabric of Freedom'.

Designed exclusively for us as part of our #haveanaiisedaylondon collection, check it out at Naiise.co.uk or come by our pop-up for a go at it! 😁
Friends in Singapore - Pop by 1 Republic Blvd for @boutiquefairssg We'll be here today until 8pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-4pm. Plus we have some new items. Hint: think outerwear.
my first introduction to @matterprints was through my friend @joleenwhodreams #matterprints is a brand that I grew to love for their purpose, the design and the practicality. They emphasize textile heritage with a mission to support designer-artisan collaborations, inspire customers to value the process, and pioneer industry change and sustainability. #shopresponsibly #theconciouscommunity #slowfashion #fashionforgood #artisanmade #globalcitizen #socialimpact #ifatkafryhindes #wellpreneur #wellnessfamily #wellnessliving #wellnessproject #healthyfam #healthylifestyle #healthy #hongkongmoms #hongkong #hongkongfashion
A process of traditional and modern elements: the ikat fabric is first hand tied and dyed to graph calculations then power-loomed on a machine. We believe that artisanship can be sustainable as an industry with a change to their process, which is why we encourage our artisan partners to use elements of mechanical processes where it’s more efficient, and handmade processes when we see that they have immeasurable human value. #ChangeBeyondTextiles
Head over to our member @sustaininglife 's Vlog to find out why the stories that our clothing tells matters 🖤
🌹THE STORIES THAT OUR CLOTHING TELLS MATTER 🌹About ourselves, about the people who made them, and about the history and craft they were born from 🌏 @matterprints seeks out these stories of culture and craft and translates them into something relevant to the modern woman who has a taste for wanderlust 🌎 These gorgeous pants were block printed with AZO-free dyes in Jaipur, India from an original design engineered by MATTER's talented and fairly paid artisan partners 📿 I could continue to sing praise for MATTER (and these sumptuous pants which I have fallen head over heels in love with ) but you'll have to click over to the blog for more details ❣️ The link is in my profile ☝️ . . . *This post is generously sponsored by @matterprints All opinions are, as always, honestly mine* . . . 📷 is by @catandcorsair #slshoppingguide #sustaininglifestyle #sustaininglife #MATTERtribe #MATTERprints #changebeyondtextile #wearwhatmatters #wearthechange #consciousfashion #sustainablefashion #ethicalfashion #fashionforgood #fashionpositive #ecochic #ecofashion #ecofashionista #fairfashion #fairfashionootd #ethicalootd #thepeoplelabel #ethicalwritersco #fashionista #whatiwore #ootd #fashionblogger #fblogger

We see textile artisanship as a lens for the basics that connects us – the need to express our values, find meaning through motifs, and create beauty. To this end, we seek out practices found in varying forms in specific local cultures, from blockprinting in India to batik in Indonesia. #ChangeBeyondTextiles

Getting back to blogging after a short break- If you haven’t checked out my previous post with @matterprints then click the link in bio. . Matter’s philosophy of slow style, slow production and slow design is truly impressive. Their collaborative effort of bringing the designers and artisans together, is inspired by an intention that every print holds a story and every craft is a piece of cultural heritage. #pantstoseetheworldin #matterprints #madeinindia #ethicalfashion #indianfashionblogger #bangalorefashionblogger #asipofbeauty #southasianblogger #vscocam #handloom #indian #indianfabrics #indiantextlies #ethicalfashionblogger #iwearhandloom #ethicalfashionbrand #sustainablefashionbrand #sustainablefashion #madeinindia #matterprints #matter #whomademyclothes #fashionrevolution
I’ve made a fast friend this week named Rhianna, and I was lucky enough to be invited to her humble abode, literally so she could give me her spare jar of Vegemite (have you guessed by now that she’s a fellow Aussie? ) Her tiny loft apartment is a minimalists dream! It was like an adult cubby house filled with carefully selected treasures that she had hand picked herself. I’m going to do a photo shoot/blog post about @rhiannamay_ and her little home soon!
Planning my next adventure ____________________ Sometimes I really get the urge to hop on a plane again. I google flights, look at air b n bs and research the area a bit. I have so many good vibes and lessons learned from living and traveling abroad. I've been blessed and shaped by my travels in ways I didn't know were possible. Finding a new space, meeting different people, challenging myself and experiencing a different way of life has taught me so much about who I really am inside. I'm still searching, still traveling, still learning. ____________________ I'd love to take another trip soon that is relatively inexpensive. If you have memories from a trip you loved and want to share them here please do. I'm always open to go somewhere new. ____________________ Now that I've been posting on my blog and on Instagram I'd also love to make visiting ethical factories and founders a part of that trip. I can learn more about what I love and share it with others. If you know (or are ) an awesome company I should work with please let me know. ____________________ Be well and plan your own adventures, I fully support your exploration!

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to have one of my photos in a @luciefoundation exhibit about environmental impact and sustainability. Sometimes our impact on the environment can start with the clothes and brands we choose to wear. I decided to wear my #matterprints boxy crop top which was fitting for the theme of sustainability. #changebeyondtextiles
