Matr Boomie was founded by Manish Gupta, upon returning from a trip to his native India after having lived in the United States for a number of years. On that trip Manish was struck by the extreme material poverty of his homeland. With a deep respect for the rich culture and the potential of rural Indians, he began asking questions. After hundreds of conversations, Manish realized he had a role to play -- that he could bridge these two seemingly disparate worlds.
In 2006, with a mission of creating opportunities for women and minorities, Manish started partnering with grassroots organizations to transform unskilled women and men into master artisans. He personally ensured that the materials were safe for people and kind to the land. With the help of his mother and sister, Manish established a team in India to guarantee clear, efficient communications and high-quality production. He gathered a team in Austin, Texas to design collections that entice Westerners while honoring the culture, craft and capacity of Indian artisans. Along the way, he married an inspiring Indian designer, Ruchi, who quickly became his partner in life, love and business.
Today Matr Boomie works with more than 20,000 artisans in 40 communities throughout India creating jewelry, gifts, journals, fashion accessories and home decor items. Manish and Ruchi's passion has enabled them to build a company that is making critical differences in the lives of the artisans, their families and communities.
