Cool sustainable & cruelty free brand: Matt & Nat

Gabrielle Koster

Three times hurray for brands that care about our planet and the people and animals on it. One of those brands is Matt & Nat. And here’s what you need to know about the products they make.

Hello Matt & Nat!

Let me introduce: Matt & Nat, a vegan bag brand all the way from Canada. Let’s start with a fun fact: Matt & Nat stands for Mat(t)erial + Nature, it’s a vegan bag brand therefore there are no animal products used in production. To make things extra cool: the linings inside all bags are made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. It gets even better: they really insist on building a relationship with the factories they work with. They regularly visit diligently each factory to make sure everything is being done in an ethical way.

Backpack by Matt & Nat

Bags, bags and more bags

They make all sorts of bags, from cross body bags to backpacks. But not just that, there are wallets, toiletry bags, luggage tags, passport sleeves and even dog accessories too. All cruelty free! Sounds pretty amazing right? That’s what I thought. And all the designs are so beautiful.

The Brave Backpack

I’ve been crushing on their Brave backpack for a while since it fits a laptop and has a special smartphone pocket. It’s really season-neutral and so pretty. The material of the backpack is 100% cruelty free and the lining is, like I said, made from Recycled PET bottles.

Take it Slow

I scored my backpack at Take It Slow. It’s a big cruelty free webshop that sells amazing slow fashion brands, like Matt & Nat. But also Filippa K, Alchemist, People Tree and much more. There’s no wait-list, you can just order your Matt & Nat bag (no delivery costs and one year guarantee) at The best thing: if you use ‘Gabrielle’ when checking out, you’ll receive a 15% discount!
