Featuring another lovely MATTER piece! Over the summer, I couldn't get enough of my Romper, so I'm happy to own & cherish another piece for the Autumn/Winter season. These pants are the perfect weight for living in Charleston, SC! The Sideswept Dhoti + Trikora are an edgier version of the original Indian dhoti with a take on modern asymmetry. I love how the cut of the pant works with the geometric Trikora print as it goes up the leg and into the slinging pockets and wrap fit. It is the perfect type of imbalance which makes it so great. Woven in Pochampally and stitched in Delhi, this particular garment created 74 days of artisan employment! Plus, these pants are unisex, and are dyed with azo-free dyes. The Trikora was inspired by the architectural Kangura print which was traditionally used as a border design for Rajasthani houses, and is a sign of protection and defense of loved ones. The up-facing three-sided shape of the Trikora symbolizes stability with the elements of earth and water. 

I paired my MATTER pants with a hemp tee by ONNO T-Shirts and a 31Bits necklace from YOUWE. These are the type of pants you can pair with flats for a more casual look or a little heel {like my old clarks.. but not clarks ;) if you get what I'm saying} to dress up. Which MATTER piece is your favorite?!

By the way, I just snagged myself a Fiddle-leaf Fig tree & I'm looking for a little planter home. {this basket is too small} Anyone else have one of these beautiful trees? What do you keep yours in? I'm thinking a big tin bucket.. :D

For the graphic lovers {or those who like a little visual}: If you haven't already seen the beautiful illustration of why MATTER Matters by Elizabeth Stilwell of The Note Passer, you gotta go check it out!! Her story telling is captivating!
