I am loving this new brand matt & nat based in Montreal, Canada. I first caught a glimpse of some of their bags at the store flight001 on hayes in SF. I love of course that my name is a part of their brand, but I also love that they are so fashionable with a conscience. All of matt & nat's products are 100% vegan (cruelty free, no animal products, being kind and dignified) made from the highest quality synthetic leathers (mostly of PVC). Most importantly these bags are functional -- click on the info for what's inside a typical bag and you find a cell phone pocket, a zipper pocket, a detachable keychain, and the positivity message stamped inside the lining or sometimes outside the bag. Plus did i mention how cute these bags are? It's nice to know that you can support these kinds of fashionable brands and feel like you are making some sort of difference just by buying a handbag. How's that for Zen?
