New life to unusual materials

At Smateria, any material has potential. Materials are core to Smateria's concept, as they guide the creation of new, innovative designs, while lowering our impact on the planet. Each season Smateria sources, tests and designs new styles using unusual materials and recycled products.

Diva collection - inspiration from recycled leather. 
With geometrical patterns created using recycled leather off cuts, Diva is Smateria's latest adventure. Smateria sources quality leather offcuts from sofa factories and draws inspiration from their differing shapes and sizes to rework them into patchwork and fringe designs. 

 

Net collection - reimagining fishing nets. 

The bright-coloured net fabric is known as the Smateria signature design. This net fabric is found inabundance in markets all over Cambodia and is most commonly used for making fishing or mosquito nets – now it’s got new life as an eye-catching fashion accessory.   

  

 

Remix collection - new life to plastic bags. 

Bringing new life to a usually disposable product, is one of Smateria's preferred challenges. Plastic bags are heated, shaped and reused to create the Remix collection. The final touch comes with the combination of PU leather and net, creating bags and purses that fuse together beauty, quality and respect for the environment.
