Founder and designer, Cristina Gitti, has always been passionate about the numerous possibilities of handmade design. The fact that no two pieces are the same remains exciting and Matta's definition of luxury. Her worldwide travels and discoveries inspire Cristina's textile and clothing ventures, and her devotion to handmade craft is rooted in her respect and appreciation for cultures struggling to maintain their traditions and the thread that links each generation- past and future.
The Matta Collection combines age-old techniques with spirited new colors. The feeling of movement is paired with Cristina's evolving vision, inevitably inspired by the various lands visited and cultural heritages experienced, which translates to a vibrant color palette composed upon varied textures and patterns.
Matta is committed to a sustainable lifestyle, and as such, our collections are composed of natural fibers - lightweight cottons, wools, and silks tailored to create relaxed shirts, tunics, skirts, and dresses for women. Many of which transcends every season. We develop rich textures and tones in pashmina, wool/silk shawls, and home accessories. Hand-stitched leather sandals and handbags are also available.
"Accepting imperfections is part of the experience of hand-crafted clothing. Behind each piece, each thread is a unique story." - Cristina Gitti
