Ethically minded brands create with total peace of mind using our মাটি | Mati collection of sustainable fabrics. Mati in Bengali means earth, the source of all plant-based fibres & dyes, and the place they’ll return to. Always.

DESIGN OPTIONS: This beautiful fabric begins with skillfully carved blocks. Designs both traditional and contemporary are used in a variety of repeat patterns and border prints. Each block is dipped in hot wax and swiftly stamped onto the fabric, where it quickly sets. The wax printed fabric is plunged into the natural dye process and emerges with the characteristic crackle of batik when the wax is later removed. The wax resists the dye leaving the block pattern clearly visible.

Your personal fabric range is absolutely possible!

As we are committed to the Slow Fashion Movement, fabrics are transported by sea to leave a significantly smaller carbon footprint than sending by air and to keep the fabric cost down. If needed however, an air shipment can be arranged. We encourage you then to consider a carbon offset donation to your preferred organisation.
