Our Story

Foreign Resource is a design studio centered around the consciousness of the displaced international citizen.

Founder and Creative Director, Matias Belete, grew up in five different countries — China, India, Kenya, Vietnam, and America — giving him a unique view of what it's like to grow up with no national home. After seeing first hand how human issues plague the globe, Matias created Foreign Resource with the belief that "to be meaningful, art must stand beside the problems of the world."

In spirit with the brand concept, Foreign Resource produces sustainable and ethical ready-to-wear garments, jewelry and design objects.
