Matt & Nat
MAT(T)erial and NATure is inspired by the simple motto “Live beautifully," exploring the synergy between materials and nature with their entirely vegan handbag and wallet line. Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity, and positivity found in all of us.
From the start, Matt & Nat has been committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials and they continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. PU (polyurethane) is always preferred over PVC (polyvinylchloride) since it is less harmful for the environment, and all of their linings are always made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. On average, that represents over 120,000 recycled bottles a year!
While manufacturing in China, Matt & Nat works hard to build personal relationships with each of their factories, regularly visiting each factory to make sure that the conditions of the workers developing their products are up to par with ILO SA800 standards, providing you with a quality product and their workers with a quality of life.
Their values include social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, learning, authenticity and, of course, love.
