Passionate and in awe of the world around us, the idea for MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE came to life in 1995, in the vibrant city of Montreal. At MATT & NAT, they live by the motto, “live beautifully”. They have and will forever be committed to not using leather or any other animal based materials in our designs. Each season, they continue to explore and utilize innovative ways to improve our sustainable and eco-friendly ways, while still producing high-quality and timeless products.
Over the years, they have been experimenting with different recycled materials such as nylons, cardboard, rubber, cork and now windshield resins. Since 2007, they have been committed to using linings made solely of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Today, they are proud to announce that they recycle over 9 million plastic bottles annually in the manufacturing of our bags.
