Mata Traders uses traditional methods of fabric making. Their clothing is handwoven and they use a technique for patterns called block-printing, which is kind of like a stamp for clothing. These items are made with such precision and care and it's really amazing the work that goes into each piece and how talented all of the producers are!
When Mata Traders contacted me, they requested I do some remixes of an item. I chose this pretty blue dress with hand-embroidered detailing and a block-printed pattern. I love the detail near the collar and hem of the dress. I also love that it has secret pockets in the sides of the skirt! Dresses with pockets are always awesome.
