We have been working with Matr Boomie since the start of JadeCrate. We encourage you to check out their website for stories about the artisans and product creation (it is impressive). We love their brand and their impact across the globe. Recently, they were awarded The Green America People & Planet Award. Green America celebrates businesses that represent strong social and environmental leadership and have a focus on doing business that is #madeforgood. The award is given to small businesses who show dedication to a green economy and worker empowerment.
Matr Boomie began in 2006 as a dream to create positive change through ethical, sustainable trade. Founders, Manish and Rushi Gupta, sought to relieve the extreme poverty in their native India by bridging the rich culture and potential of rural Indians and opportunities of the modern world.
Through their partnering with grassroots organizations and expert artisans, unskilled women and men transformed into community artisans. Manish and Ruchi personally ensure the materials and processes used are safe for people and kind to the land. With the help of family, a team in India was established to guarantee efficient communications and high-quality production, and a group in Austin, Texas was gathered to design custom collections that delight while honoring the culture and craft of Indian artisans.
Over a decade later, the little company run out of Manish and Ruchi’s Austin apartment has grown into a leader and innovator in ethical, sustainable business. Matr Boomie is a certified Fair Trade Federation Member.
JadeCrate is a proud retailer of Matr Boomie, and we hope you love their products as much as we do.
