The founder and designer of Matta, Cristina Gitti, has always been inspired by the numerous possibilities of handmade design. Her textiles and clothing, in rich woven cottons and silks, are a wonderful blend of East and West. Using dye techniques and traditional patterns to create textiles unique to her Matta line each season, she mixes age-old techniques with vibrant colors and new forms. The Matta collection includes dresses, jackets, pants, shirts, skirts, scarves and shawls, all made from natural fibers.
