Since MATTER’s founding, the company has paid tribute to a regional and vibrant cultural heritage through Asian styled garments. More recently, they’ve extended their range of products to include scarves as well. There are so many kinds of MATTER scarves and so many materials from which to choose! Some of their scarves are hand blockprinted in Jaipur, Rajasthan with fourth generation artisan partner, AK Textiles. This variety of MATTER scarves is lovingly made with threaded balls and tassel details from a cotton silk blend. MATTER also has a Jamdani collection of scarves which are part of a collaboration with New Delhi based designer, Sonica Kapur. This line is handwoven and hand embroidered by an artisan community based in Habibpur, India and is made from 100% cotton muslin.
