Matt Dick is a creative director in the broadest sense of the word. His range of discipline span from clothing and textile to branding and interiors. Located on the edge of SF’s Tenderloin on Post Street, his all encompassing office/atelier, Small Trade Company enables him to do just that. He’s designed uniforms for Blue Bottle, Bar Agricole, Bardessono Hotel and Spa in Yountville and store interiors for Levi’s. But his love of indigo is what he’s most known for. Dick’s training in the blue-dyed fabric was unlike any other, studying under Yasuo Nakajima, “a fourth-generation indigo dyer and Living National Treasure” in Japan. There he learned the techniques that is seen in his own collection of totes, bags and clothing. His style is influenced by Eastern elements with an attention to work clothes and rugged materials. See first hand the products from Small Trade Company’s at Project No.8 and March.
