The idea behind MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE was conceptualized in 1995: exploring the synergy between the two and the reflection of one on the other, as they say. The company's motto is "live beautifully" and, to them, that means upholding values of integrity, social responsibility, excellence, authenticity, and love (amongst others). Their products are inspired by the colors and textures of nature, manufactured in a way that protects it.
Matt & Nat's collections are not comprised of any animal-based materials, but rather make use of recycled materials, such as recycled cork, rubber, cardboard and nylons. Since 2007, the company has been committed to using linings solely made of 100% recycled plastic bottles.
During its expansion (across Canada, the USA, UK, Japan, Germany, and Australia), Matt & Nat continues to explore innovative ways to stay sustainable and eco-friendly.
