Matt & Nat
The idea behind Mat(t)erial & Nature originally came to life in beautiful Montreal. This bag and fashion brand was founded in 1995 and takes its inspiration from nature, material and the synergy between the two.
Matt & Nat live by a simple motto, “Live beautifully”. Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us. Their values include social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, learning, authenticity and, of course, love. They are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, they aim to constantly better their ways.
From the start, they were committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in their designs. Each season, they explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, they’ve been experimenting with different materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, they’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles and they also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to their collections.
