MATT & NAT
MATT & NAT is a Vegan company that produces handbags, footwear and other small accessories with no trace of animal products.
Some ideas sneak up on you as if they were always meant to be. The idea behind MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE originally came to life in 1995, in beautiful Montreal. “We’re passionate and in awe of the world that surrounds us. Being inspired by MAT(T)erial and NATure means exploring the synergy between the two, the reflection of one on the other…” says Inder Bedi, Founder of MATT & NAT.
At MATT & NAT, they 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 love. They are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, they aim to constantly better their ways.
Each season, they continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, they’ve been experimenting with different recycled 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. They have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to our collections.
MATT & NAT collections can now be found in boutiques across Canada, the United States, the UK, Japan, Germany and Australia.
"From the start, being committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in our designs felt natural to us."
