Over production is a leading reason that the fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world. Producing blindly with little concern for demand, resulting in 14 million tonnes of textile waste being put into landfills each year.
Done by Matea has up until now been based off of a made-to-order model and I have now shifted to pre-order for some items. Other items like earrings are made in small batches and are ready-to-wear. A pre-order schedule allows me to create only as many items as are ordered and truly wanted, without any product going to waste. It also creates a more manageable schedule for efficiently hand making products.
Hopefully this can be an example of how the fashion industry can do better for our planet and the people in it. Your support and understanding make this possible.

Done by Matea is Matea Gluscevic, a shoemaker and artist, creating a whole range of handmade items including handmade shoes, earrings and objects.
Done by Matea was created out of a passion for creativity and facilitating self expression. My goal is to create unique wearables, while maintaining ethical making practices and being as environmentally friendly as possible. What was originally just me making random things for myself has now led to sharing my products and visions with you. I aim to provide high quality handmade products without unneccesary waste.
Proudly Australian owned with all products made in Australia, mostly by hand. All materials used are also sourced from reputable and ethical suppliers within Australia. Based in Adelaide, all items are created with a purpose as I believe that expressing yourself should be a fun and unique experience!
