The new season is in the air: warm air, the first fresh flowers of spring and a definite goodbye to winter coats. As temperatures rise, we crave soft pastels and sleek shapes to accompany our spring wardrobes – cue Matt & Nat, one of our favourite cruelty-free accessory brands.
Born in 1995 in beautiful Montreal, Canada, the brand explores the synergy between MAT(T)terial and NATure, creating sophisticated accessories that can effortlessly be added into your daytime wardrobe.
Recycled materials are high on Matt & Nat’s priority list – over the years, the label has experimented with recycled nylons, cardboard, cork and rubber and in 2007 the brand committed to using only recycled plastic bottles for the linings of their bags.
Crafted from natural cork, these bags are true statement pieces – elements of this unique material can be found both on the interior and exterior, meaning that surfaces will come with imperfections – a true testament to the one-of-a-kind journey of the bag.
These lightweight designs are finished in rich colours and made from a light and malleable polyurethane composite that’s durable and environment-friendly. That’s what we call a style investment.
Sophisticated and versatile, these bags are made from a material that creases naturally, mimicking the texture of real leather. The surface will age over time to create a vintage feel.
‘Live beautifully’ is Matt & Nat’s motto – to us at Vilda, this means taking conscious responsibility to bring positive energy into the world around us. To live in tune with nature and the planet, all while expressing our individuality. And Matt and Nat is the perfect proof that fashion can do just that.
