Matt and Nat bags make it possible for everyone to enjoy the looks and luxury of designer leather handbags – but in a way which is environmentally friendly and totally cruelty-free.
Matt & Nat (or as the fashionista’s say it, Matt Nat) are based in Montreal, Canada, and have been creating luxury vegan bags and accessories since 1995. All Matt and Nat handbags and purses are suitable for vegans and vegetarians, being totally void of animal products such as leather, silk, fur and wool.
Matt and Nat bags – eco-friendly fashion with a passion
Besides the ethical aspect, veganism has been proven to be one of the best ways to fight global warming. Matt Nat has taken this one stage further, with their “21 water bottle initiative”. This means the linings of their beautiful products are made from recycled plastic water bottles, an average of 21 in each bag!
All Matt and Nat bags contain a message, telling you exactly how many bottles went into their making. Something to think about next time you top up the Evian supply.
The story behind Matt and Nat
The story of Matt & Nat began in 1992, when Inder Bedi (co-owner and creative director of the company) accepted a challenge to go vegetarian for a month.
The experience planted the seeds of what was to follow in1995, when Inder was in the middle of a marketing and corporate law degree. As an assignment, she had to devise a business plan for a pretend company, with “funding”. Her business plan was for a fashion house selling eco-friendly, vegan bags and accessories. Despite getting zero funding (and a B on the paper) Inder decided to ditch the idea of law school and concentrate on seeing her fantasy become a reality; thus Matt Nat was born.
The beauty of Matt and Nat handbags
Matt and Nat is a brand forged by duality, and the idea of creating beautiful things which have a positive impact. Matt and Nat bags are designed for people who prize smart, unpretentious products which revel in their social conscience.
The design style of Matt and Nat handbags focuses on hidden, captivating details, with architectural shapes and embellishments which are straight off the catwalk. Urban and understated, Matt & Nat vegan bags combine designer fashion with social responsibility, to create duality and purpose.
The Matt and Nat bags we have at Nature Boutique highlight all that is best about the brand. The gorgeous black vegan leather of the zip-accented Boratto is impossible to tell from the real thing, while the detachable strap takes it from office holdall to party clutch bag in an instant. Our gorgeous Cleo and Commix Matt and Nat handbags showcase the latest studded look, and go perfectly with the matching chip purse. The brown Tundra parachute bag epitomises cool; as with most Matt & Nat vegan bags it has a plethora of internal compartments for your PDA, mobile phone and other essentials.
Design-centric, eco-friendly and devoid of all animal products, Matt Nat vegan bags represent everything we at Nature’s Boutique are passionate about.
