August tends to be a slow month for sample sales but there are a few that have popped up. One we’re looking forward to checking out is Matta which is hosting a sale next week at its showroom.

A few weeks ago, I wandered into the store on Lafayette Street wondering if they would have an end-of-season sale. Needless to say, I was excited when they contacted us to let us know they were having one!

The label offers simple, timeless and colorful Indian-influenced women’s clothing as well as handcrafted shoes and accessories. Think lightweight cottons and silks that are perfect for the sweltering temperatures were currently experiencing.

We’re told that they’ll have a wide selection of clothing and accessories at the sale, including dresses, tops, scarves, sarongs and sandals. Check out the gallery below to get an idea.

Examples of Deals Include:

  • Scarf with Navy Tassels $60
  • Umaa Top + Kurta (embroidery: one short, one longer) both $30
  • Dress (Red zig zag, tiered) $30
