Founded in Montreal in 1995, Matt & Nat the brand always aimed to explore “the synergy between Material and Nature” – and originally did so by making some of the most beautiful and sought-after handbags in the realm of vegan fashion. Matt & Nat products soon broke through the glass ceiling of vegan and/or ethical fashion and transcended into a more mainstream market of highly curated boutiques and fashion concept stores worldwide – and not necessarily the ones with a focus on eco-fashion, thus enormously broadening the audience for vegan alternatives.

Matt & Nat is eco by definition, though. From day one, the company committed to never using leather or other animal-based materials in their designs. The company has been including more recycled materials into their portfolio (i.e. nylon, cardboard, rubber, and cork). Linings for their handbags are made of 100% recycled plastic bottles and they have just recently introduced recycled bicycle tires into their collections.
