Cristina Gitti, the owner of Matta, is a woman of many talents. From collecting fine art from all over the world to designing her own fabric prints, Gitti does it all. Matta, which means “mother” in Hindi (and “crazy” in Italian) is a physical manifestation of Gitti’s eclectic interest in collecting. Inside the store you’ll find beaded work from India, recycled paper animals from Mexico, handbags and skirts from China, and even items from Gitti’s very own ready-to-wear clothing line in lightweight cottons, silks, and wools. The Dupatta stole, a shawl made from a blend of cotton and silk, is one of Matta’s most popular items, with a following that stretches across several continents. The common denominator with everything Matta sells is its focus on economic and social sustainability. With so much to offer, you may be surprised by Matta’s streamlined minimalist interior, a testament to Gitti’s love of Japan. Show lessRead more
