Nice but different from the pic

They're nice but they are MUCH lighter in reality. Very casual looking. So, they're not what I was expecting (colour-wise) so can't wear them to anything other than a very causal outing. But the print is nice. And I love Matter :)


I love them! Was just having a look online yesterday for my next pair :)
I really admire the ethos of Matter too - and the staff have been great. All round good show!

Comfortable, fashionable, sustainable!

Always happy with my MATTER purchase!


I love it!

Comfortable, soft, flattering

This is my third sideswept dhoti from Matter and my second favourite. The fit seems to differ between the three I have - silk, organic cotton and handloom. This organic cotton one is soft and comfortable, yet relatively cooling in Singapore's heat. I love how the pants add a slight illusion of curves. However, the belt seems to be shorter than the silk one I have (perhaps the materials stretch differently) and as a result I have to wear this pair higher on the waist and tie it very tightly just to have enough cloth for a knot. For reference, I wear size 25 or 26 jeans. If you want to have more of a knot, then if your waist is not 26 inches, size up to a 2.
