MATT & NAT = MAT(T)ERIAL + NATURE.
At Coffee & Cloth we are always on the lookout for brands who are paving the way for positive changes in the way we shop and consume.
Born in Montreal in 1995 MAT(T)ERIAL and NAT(URE) is a vegan brand therefore there are no animal products used in production. From the beginning they have been committed to not using animal- based materials in their designs.
With a signature minimal look, each season Matt & Nat strive to design timeless and durable styles that are functional, practical and resistant as well as fashionable. Every new style introduced to their range is quality control tested, to check the durability and strength of the bags to ensure they can last a very long time and hence, is what makes these bags sustainable products.
As well as quality led design every season Matt & Nat explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years they have experimented with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, they have been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Approximately 21 plastic bottles are recycled for every bag they produce. Recently introducing recycled bicycle tires to their collections.
The linings inside all Matt & Nat vegan leather bags are made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles.
In addition to being vegan, sustainable materials are constantly sourced in design.
Matt & Nat use various vegan leathers in the production of their products, the scientific terms are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride). PU is less harmful for the environment than PVC and is the preferred choice whenever possible while continuously improving the standards for all their materials
