Established in 1988 the founding of Mata was a result of many years of expertise finally finding its way into a small factory. With the help of 80 collaborators, the factory soon made name for itself because of their strong philosophy about price vs quality. Their standard is incredibly high, yet they also believe in a fair price for a product.
It is this belief we share but it does not end there, Mata does not overproduce and will always keep a maximum to what they do. Speaking to the owner Mr Rui we, on many occasions, asked him if he does not want to expand and grow bigger. But his answer is simple; “I believe in quality but also that I’m taking care of, and have responsibility for 85 families in this region. It is easy to grow bigger but it is a lot harder to stay that way. I strongly believe that staying small and focusing on quality over quantity is the key to our success.”
