Montreal-born Matt & Nat (a name extracted from MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE) is a notable sustainable brand that make some very beautiful and affordable bags.
Inspired by the nature and live by the motto “Live beautifully,” Matt & Nat is committed to not using any animal-based materials in their products (such as genuine leather) but only vegan and recycled materials. When it comes to making leather bags, vegan leather, or polyurethane, a.k.a faux leather is the answer from Matt & Nat.
This very classy August briefcase in olive is one of my favourites from Matt & Nat. The “vertical briefcase” fits at least a 13″ laptop, comes with removable strap and enough pockets for iPad, smartphone and other daily essentials. This bag could be a perfect daily bag for many working professionals, and I can already imagine myself using this bag for days when my mighty backpack is a little overkill.
Retailed at $165, August briefcase is actually quite a bargain.
