Brand to Watch: Mozh Mozh

Posted in Style
by Make it last on 15 April, 2020

Set your eyes on a piece by Mozh Mozh and you won’t be able to look away for while. The Lima based brand was established in 2015 by Mozdeh Matin, who was born in the Peruvian Andes to Iranian parents. Matin offers unique, hand woven dresses and bags to die for, and credits her early interest in fabrics, patterns and prints to growing up immersed in two cultures known for their ancient textile heritages. With Mozh Mozh, she works in close collaboration with artisans from different small Peruvian communities safeguarding textiles and techniques.
“For the Incas, textiles were always the place where you wrote your story and what it represents. Your community, your family, your heritage. It was sacred. It was like writing”, Matin tells Cultured Mag and continues: “That’s the opposite of how we value textiles today.”
Some of the techniques featured in Mozh Mozh garments are at risk of disappearing, as younger generations of the rural communities that produce them move to the cities and look for more modern occupations. Matin wishes to preserve these techniques while adding new forms and details in her design.
