Looking for sophisticated yet simple and elegant bags and shoes whose production hasn’t harmed a single animal? You’ve come to the right place. Plus, all of their bags linings are made of 100% recycled plastic bottles (approx. 21 bottles are recycled per bag). Can this get any better?!
Did you know what Matt & Nat was named after? Well, simply Mat(t)erial and Nature. And that summarises quite well the composition of Matt & Nat shoes and bags: materials that go with nature and not against it. Founded in 1995, Matt & Nat is constantly innovating and finding new ways to use sustainable materials such as cork, rubber and recycled nylon. They also try to use as much Polyurethane as possible, which is less harmful than PVC.
Matt & Nat shoes and bags are made in China, in small factories that they regularly visit. One of their factories operates by the SA8000 standard, which ensures quality work conditions for all. They hope to make it a bigger part of their production in a near future.
People at Matt & Natt have a simple motto, which is “Live beautifully”. How so? Byw appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity that surround all of us.
