Some ideas sneak up on you as if they were always meant to be. Passionate and in awe with the world around us, the idea for MAT(T)erial and NATure came to life in 1995, in the vibrant city of Montreal. Being inspired by MAT(T)erial and NATure means exploring the synergy between the two, the reflection of one on to the other.
At MATT & NAT™, we live by the motto “Live beautifully”. This means we appreciate and cherish the creativity and positivity found in all of us. We value social responsibility, integrity, authenticity and, of course, love. We are intrigued by the hues and textures of nature and strive to better protect its beauty.

We have and will forever be committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in our designs. Each season, we continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Since 2007, we have been committed to using linings made solely of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Today, we are proud to announce that we have recycled over four million plastic bottles as of 2018 in the manufacturing of our bags.
