Mata Traders is an American fair trade clothing company. I love that they’ve begun to make more streamlined, less feminine garments that appeal to my aesthetic. I find that their clothing isn’t really tailored for my body type, however, so I’m happy to support their accessories line. Mata Traders sent me this season’s Quill Earrings and I wear them at least a couple times a week. They make a statement while remaining lightweight and relatively minimalist. I prefer geometric shapes in my jewelry and most of their offerings provide exactly what I want.
The real selling point, though, is that they’re reasonably priced in the range of 18.00 to 25.00. I typically buy my jewelry from etsy sellers or Ten Thousand Villages, so I always expect to pay in that range for an ethically made, high quality piece. I’m strongly considering buying a few of their sale items, like the black and gold ones featured above.
