Inspired by a deep respect for each other and the earth that supports us, MATR BOOMIE keeps a keen eye on how our collaborations affect artisan health, safety and happiness — and how the entire lifecycle of our products affect our shared planet. We reinvest 15% of annual profits in artisan communities through development projects — such as medical clinics, schools and public health infrastructure — co-managed by our team in India and local artisan cooperatives.
In addition, some of our achievements to date include:
Established partnerships with over 900 artisans in 12 Indian states
First company to develop a fair trade Artisan Assessment Index, a sustainability measurement tool that quantifies social impacts
First Fair Trade wholesale company in U.S. to publish a comprehensive sustainability report in 2013
First company to sponsor 20 new kilns for Indian bell making artisans, which provides a safer production process.
Yes, we love fashion, fun and beautiful things. But the real passion driving MATR BOOMIE is to create a more healthy, vibrant, diverse, compassionate and connected world through sustainable design. Challenging our creativity, we work hard to ensure that our products have a positive impact on people and the precious little home planet we all share. We invite you to join us in our commitment and learn more in our Impact Report!
