Description

Inspired by my Armenian-Dutch roots and drawing inspiration from the intricate patterns of my great grandfather’s rugs, the Amulet motif was designed with the cultural belief of its ability to ward off misfortune and injury cast upon by the “evil eye”, guiding the wearers towards having spiritual balance.

 

The seven teardrop-like shapes symbolizes divine light and wisdom, while the diamond signifies clarity of mind.

MATTER is a socially motivated brand focusing on affordable luxury, thoughtful design and provenance, connecting rural textile artisans and urban designers to create travel ware with stories to tell. Our mission is threefold – to foster designer-artisan collaborations, inspire consumers to value provenance and process, and pioneer industry change and sustainability for rural textile communities.

 

They are inspired by travel. Story driven, community based, built on direct relationships and commitment to respecting provenance. Founded in 2014, they began simply with the intention to make where and why something is made, and by whom, matter. An idea borne of conversations and late night dreaming between two friends, Yvonne and Ren, became a mission to make connected clothing – pieces carrying handcrafted grace in each thread and cultural heritage in their colours and shapes.

 

Ms Browns Lounge loves MATTER and we’re so proud to be collaborating with them!
