Yesterday I had a meeting with my lovely friend Cristina Gitti, the owner of Matta, a beautiful store at 241 Lafayette Street and Spring Street in Manhattan.
Cristina is the designer of the globally inspired line of clothing, pillows and throws which are all made from natural fibers and hand produced in India. She travels out there twice a year and has established wonderful relationships with the families that she works with; she can tell some amazing stories.
Matta also carries lines from other designers and I was happy to see my bag nestling next to some beautiful bright pillows.
We are working on a book project together that will be published in September and I will reveal more down the line.
