Black Friday or Buy Nothing Day Dilemma?

Are you a “Black Friday” or “Cyber Monday” fanatic or an advocate of “Buy Nothing Day”? We at Matr Boomie believe in conscious consumerism, so if you are wanting to buy gifts for family and loved ones we give you the option to shop more ethically and sustainably and in a way that supports the local economy, as well as gives back to the global community.

Our products are designed exclusively by our majority female-led design team in Austin, TX. Our design team works in collaboration with a wide community of artisan makers across India to bring beautiful and functional products to market in the US. Our fair trade model ensures your dollar goes directly to the artisans we partner with and supports their livelihoods. We believe in creating a world that is more playful, compassionate, kind and connected. We use trade as a tool for positive change by designing and distributing products for ethical living.

Each Matr Boomie gift is intricately handcrafted by artisans using age-old traditions, passed down from generation to generation. This means that no two pieces are exactly the same and there is a story behind each one. Cultural preservation is closely linked to craftsmanship which would otherwise be lost in today’s mass produced world. Our supply chains are shorter than traditional factory based models and we adhere to the principles of the Fair Trade Federation. We believe in lasting relationships and one of the reasons we rebranded to Matr Boomie (previously known as Handmade Expressions) was to focus more on people rather than the end product.  Our motto is “All One. All Kin” and our larger mission is to bring people and cultures closer together, where we dissolve our differences and celebrate our oneness. We want people to recognize that we all belong to one Mother Earth, one MotherLand.

We hope that you will join us in this journey and mission and enjoy the unique, handmade and timeless quality of our products. Whether it be a gift to yourself or to someone special in your life who appreciates the value of a quality handmade product, you can rest assured that you have considered people and the planet with your purchase.
