At Matt & Nat, they live by a simple motto, "live beautifully". Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us. Their values include social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, authenticity and, of course, love. They are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, they aim to create beautiful style that is always eco-friendly.
Some ideas sneak up on you as if they were always meant to be. The idea behind Matt & Nat originally came to life in 1995, in beautiful Montreal. The brand was founded on a passion and awe of the natural world that surrounds us, which is where the name came from - MAT(t)erial and NATure. Being inspired by these elements, Matt & Nat sought to explore the synergy between the two, and the reflection of one on the other.
From the very start, Matt & Nat have been committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in their designs. Each season they continue to explore innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Since 2007, they have been committed to only using linings made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. They have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to their collections.
