Matt & Natt is a vegan brand that makes sustainable bags, shoes and accessories.
The idea behind Matt & Nat came about in Montreal in 1995. The name of the brand is a mix of the two words MAT(T)erial and NATure and the brand aims at exploring the synergy there between. The brand’s motto is simple–“Live beautifully”–which means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us.
All product are all vegan–not using leather or any other animal-based materials in the designs felt natural to the founders. In addition to being vegan, Matt & Nat has been experimenting with a lot of different recycled materials such as recycled nylon, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, Matt & Nat has been committed to using linings made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Recently it also introduced recycled bicycle tires to the designs–quite amazing in our opinion.
Matt & Nat’s collections can be found in stores across Canada, the United States, the UK, Japan, Germany and Australia. And can shop online here. Find out more interesting brands from our Sustainable Brand Index here.
