Matt & Nat Laroux Cross Body

Matt & Nat Laroux Clutch

I have been drooling over Matt & Natbags for years! I love their style and design! I refuse to wear or purchase leather or any article of clothing or accessory made from an animal but that being said I also love fashion! I went to college for it!  While most of my friends were wearing Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Chanel and so on I was quite limited to bags that I liked that didn’t look “hippish” but that didn’t look cheap either. It sometimes was a grueling process to find shoes, bags wallets or even sometimes coats. Now with businesses like Matt & Nat those of us who choose not to participate in torturing animals have the opportunity to show the rest of the fashion world you don’t need leather or snake skin to be fashionable!
For my birthday this year some of my fave friends got together and purchased me my first Matt & Nat bag! I am in love! I had been dying to get my own for a while but was trying to be conservative. I can’t get enough of it. I have been wearing it everyday and every time someone asks me about the bag I give them the story of Matt & Nat.

About Matt & Nat:In the summer of 1992, I was challenged by a Mahatma to go vegetarian for 30 days. At the time I had no idea that this choice would have such an impact in my life as well as that of others.
Three years later, I was completing a degree in marketing and corporate law when one of my courses required me to develop a business plan and go out to attain funding from banks. I came up with the idea of MATT & NAT, got a B on the paper and got zero ‘pretend funding’ from 2 banks. Nevertheless, feeling that this would be my life’s calling, I decided to forego the idea of attending law school and start a brand shaped by duality, the idea of creating beautiful things that have a positive impact. The characters in the acronym M&N represent this journey.
Over Fifteen years later, our team is continuously working towards this goal, developing beautiful (we hope) products for people who appreciate a smart, unpretentious, socially conscious brand characterized by minimalist design and utility.

Positive impact, every little bit counts!
As has been the case since our humble beginnings, our line is cruelty-free, using no animal products. Veganism has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to fight global warming.
As an example of the spirit and commitment of MATT & NAT, all linings of our bags and wallets are made of 100% recycled plastic bottles. In fact, on average we recycle 21 water bottles to make the lining of each bag.
In 2011 we introduced cork labeling inside all of our bags, an innovative material in the fashion industry that is sustainable to the environment. Cork extraction is one of the most environmentally friendly harvesting processes in the world.
Every now and then we also donate bags to women’s shelters around Montreal, feed the homeless people of this city a vegetarian meal and throw product out of our office windows to loyal fans.
