Matt and Nat on their company values and the materials they use:

"At MATT & NAT, we live by a simple motto, “Live beautifully”. Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us. Our values include social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, learning, authenticity and, of course, love. We are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, we aim to constantly better our ways.

It’s important for us not to use leather. Simply put, we don’t like hurting animals and we care about the welfare of the planet. Our collections are all designed by our close-knit team in Montreal, Quebec. We develop prototypes and collections based on our sketches, using our signature vegan leathers and using eco-friendly materials like recycled nylon, cork and rubber. The bags are then produced in China, in small factories we’ve had long-standing relationships with. We only collaborate with factories that are in line with our ethos and verify regularly our operations are up to standards. We make sure the factories we work with qualify for the SA8000 standard certification.

Various vegan leathers are used in production, the scientific terms are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride). PU is less harmful for the environment than PVC and its use is definitely preferred, whenever possible. In addition to being vegan, sustainable materials are constantly sourced in design; these include recycled nylons, cork and rubber. Moreover, all our linings are made of 100% recycled bottles. Approximately 21 plastic bottles are recycled for every bag we produce."
