Our founding

Macte is a new brand which was founded in 2016.  Our brand Macte, which in Latin stands for glorious, was founded by a professional designer (Master of Arts in Fashion Design) Anna Orlova in a collaboration with a small team of enthusiasts.  Anna has been in the clothing industry for the last twenty years. Throughout this time she has worked with a multitude of different types of clothing, especially knitwear. Gradually, she became more and more interested in accessories and eventually decided to direct her attention towards contemporary scarves and shawls.

Responsibility

In – depth research of weaving traditions in different cultures took us to Nepal with its ancient traditions of quality and skill and made us think that it would be a perfect place to produce our garments. Every factory that we have placed orders with has been visited personally to ensure ethical production. All of them are small companies, more often than not family businesses with lots of relatives employed side by side. The production is environmentally friendly and only adult, experienced workers are involved. When purchasing our products, our clients can be sure that all of them have been produced ethically. Many garments are woven by hand using ancient techniques. All designs are strictly exclusive and property of Macte TM.

Materials

Currently we only use cashmere, pure baby cashmere, and various blends of cashmere and silk. Cashmere first attracted our attention due to its fantastic properties. It is an extremely light and warm material which won´t let you freeze, all while remaining fresh and pleasant to the touch. Silk is definitely a perfect match for cashmere and only emphasizes the qualities cashmere possesses by itself.

We believe that it is really important for a business to approach its customers face - first. It would be impossible to produce clothing in Nepal while turning a blind eye to those in need of help and support. Approximately ten percent of our sales will be given to Nepalese charities. We will share more information on the topic on our website and via social media.
