MATI ROBERTS (MATICO)
*Images shown are examples of Matico products and prices, similar items are available from the gallery. Matico is a small, local business producing unique jewellery and lampshades run by Mati Roberts, in Cardiff. In 2014, Mati volunteered as a nurse in Ghana and completely fell in love with the vibrant colours and patterns of the beautiful, locally produced fabrics that surrounded me. The town where she stayed was full of these bright colours and bold patterns, and, instead of generic clothes shops and chains, there were small fabric shops, next to little shops where people made the clothes. Most pieces of Matico jewellery will be completely unique. Some will be similar in colours, patterns and style, but not exactly the same, which all adds to their uniqueness and charm. Mati tries to use as many recycled and eco-friendly materials as possible when making her jewellery. Many of the cords she uses are cork, recycled cotton or braided t-shirt yarn which is recycled from unwanted fashion fabrics. A percentage of Matico profits go towards sending resources to a school that was opened in 2018 in Accra on the outskirts of Ghana, where there previously was no school. 108 pupils now attend this school.
