Splashing around in colors and prints under the sun back home in Oklahoma has never felt so good. Teamed up with one of my favorite ethical brands--MATTER PRINTS--to bring you patterned pants that support artisans around the world continue their traditional craft and become financially independent. Could hand-crafted and ethical ever look more beautiful?

Matter Print's pants are bright, colorful, and always the first thing anyone will notice--they are as loud and impactful as their mission: "to inspire consumers to value provenance – to ask of the where and why something is made, and champion alternative production models for textile artisans to expand their economic opportunities"

Aside from the pair I'm wearing (which are super light, soft, comfortable, breezy, and loose--a perfect ally against the summer heat (especially handy on my upcoming trip to Iran)!) and the pair I featured in my post 6 (Ethical) Brands You'll Love as Much as Zara, here are a few of my favorites:



A brand that is beautiful inside and out--and definitely worth supporting!
